Orlando, FLorida (PRWEB) September 16, 2007
Orlando Magazine, the chronicle of central Florida lifestyle, awarded Dr. Kenrick Spence top honors this month in its annual poll of "The Best of Orlando." The plastic surgeon was singled out as readers from around the area voted for their favorite restaurants, stores, personalities and more.
Although the magazine noted that "quite a few categories got a good shake-up this year," Dr. Spence took the top spot in Orlando plastic surgery for the sixth year in a row. "To be named top plastic surgeon again by residents of a community that calls itself 'The City Beautiful' is indeed a high honor," said Dr. Spence.
Dr. Spence feels it's the relationships he develops with his Orlando plastic surgery patients that probably make the difference between him and other plastic and cosmetic surgeons in Orlando. He emphasizes patient education to the point that he often provides multiple consultations prior to surgery. He also routinely sets aside time in his daily schedule for one-on-one discussions with patients.
Another key to good patient relationships, Dr. Spence feels, is to understand not just patients' physical attributes and aesthetic desires, but to learn about their lives as well. "As a trained, experienced surgeon, it's easy for me to understand 'how' to deliver results. It's more challenging, and just as vital, to understand 'why.'" Knowing patient motivations helps ensure they are candidates for the procedures they're considering, Dr. Spence explained. It's also a good idea to give thought to 'when' it's the right time for a patient to have a procedure. "We tend to be quite active here in Orlando, and plastic surgery patients sometimes underestimate or overestimate recovery time. When I know about the demands of their jobs and families, I can help them plan."
Dr. Spence has other strategies for ensuring he communicates with patients throughout their plastic surgery experience. Workshops he conducts during the year give prospective patients the information they need to consider all their alternatives and decide whether to pursue plastic surgery in Orlando. His Web site, devoted to patient education, offers frank, honest information on topics from surgical risks to fees and financing.
