Dr. Jack Gunter One of 2009’s ‘Best Doctors in Dallas,’ Rhinoplasty Surgeon Embraces Social Media for Community Outreach

Dallas top rhinoplasty surgeons, Dr. Jack Gunter and Dr. C. Spencer Cochran, have been honored as two of the “Best Doctors in Dallas” for 2009 in D Magazine’s November issue on Top Doctors. As part of their continuing outreach to the community, Drs. Gunter and Cochran are embracing social media networks such as Facebook and YouTube to provide previous and prospective patients with new, state-of-the-art ways of communicating with the practice.

Dallas, TX (Vocus) February 4, 2010

A recent poll conducted by D Magazine, of more than 4,800 doctors in the Dallas, Texas area asked them to name two physicians in 40 specialties to whom they would send their patients or loved ones. Dr. Jack Gunter and Dr. C. Spencer Cochran were awarded the honor within the Cosmetic / Reconstructive Surgery category. Both Dr. Gunter and Dr. Cochran are internationally-known for their results in rhinoplasty (nose job) procedures, and they are two of only a handful of surgeons in the United States who focus exclusively on rhinoplasty, revision rhinoplasty, and rhinoplasty-related procedures such as chin and cheek augmentation (implants) and reshaping and facial/neck liposuction.

Dr. Gunter says the honor caps an exciting year for him and his practice. The Gunter Center is known for its top surgeons and its use of the latest plastic and reconstructive surgery technology (3-D imaging). In the last few years, its embrace of the most advanced tools and techniques has spread to its presence on the worldwide web. As internet video, instant messaging, and social media networks such as Facebook have quickly revolutionized the way in which we communicate, Dr. Jack Gunter and his team at the Gunter Center are utilizing these tools to give previous and prospective patients new ways to learn about procedures, view before and after photos and interact with the practice.

Dr. Jack Gunter says using social networking sites such as Facebook and YouTube allow patients to engage with the practice in forums that they are familiar with and enjoy. Fellow colleagues and referring medical professionals can also connect with the practice via Dr. Jack Gunter’s Linked-In profile, a professional networking site. Dr. Gunter sees patients who have come from across the globe for treatment, and he says his social media outreach has proven so popular over the last few months that one rhinoplasty patient recently flew in from Florida after viewing one of Dr. Gunter’s YouTube videos.

Though The Gunter Center’s comprehensive websites offer detailed information on rhinoplasty in Dallas and other plastic and reconstructive surgery procedures, Dr. Gunter says social media networks add even more convenient ways to keep in touch with patients and those seeking information – giving them easy and accessible methods of communicating their needs.
