People are turning to the Internet to answer their questions more and more, and they often get bad advice. I wanted to offer answers from a medical background so I could help more people.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) July 18, 2012
HealthTap.com named Dr. Steven Zimmet of Zimmet Vein and Dermatology a premier medical expert in the fields of dermatology and phlebology on its website last week.
Dr. Zimmet, a leader in Austin sclerotherapy, quickly established himself as an expert on the site and was voted by his peers as the top physician in the fields of varicose veins, sclerotherapy and body sculpting.
HealthTap.com allows patients to ask health questions that doctors can then choose to answer. Other doctors can then agree or give differing opinions to help the patient find an answer.
Dr. Zimmet has racked up 190 “agrees” from doctors on the website, which helped him earn his status as a member of the HealthTap Expert Network.
“I joined HealthTap because I thought it was an interesting service to offer,” Dr. Zimmet said. “People are turning to the Internet to answer their questions more and more, and they often get bad advice. I wanted to offer answers from a medical background so I could help more people.”
HealthTap also took into account Dr. Zimmet’s medical background when naming him a premier medical expert. Dr. Zimmet’s role as the founding president of the American Board of Phlebology and as a past president of the American College of Phlebology, as well as his numerous awards, helped propel him to expert status on the website.
