Social Media is personal. Patients can ask questions and get expert opinions now as opposed to throwing their question out on a message board, as done previously, and receiving feedback from unknown individuals.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) February 22, 2012
Atlanta plastic surgeon Dr. John LeRoy now has 100,000 followers on Twitter and is now one of the most followed active plastic surgeons on the social network. Dr. LeRoy has consistently been an early adopter of technology, as he was one of the first Atlanta practices to have a website in 1996. He’s committed to having a strong online presence in order to facilitate doctor-patient communication and improve the experience of his patients.
Whether patients are looking for a particular restaurant in the city or a cosmetic surgical procedure like breast augmentation in Atlanta, he says patients are now using the Internet to access a majority of the information they need, and he hopes to fulfill that need by keeping them up to date with the latest advancements in plastic surgery technology.
As more people begin to use social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook, Dr. LeRoy plans to continue utilizing the platforms to enhance patient care and provide more consistent access to valuable educational resources. For example, he says patients interested in a plastic surgery procedure like eyelid surgery now have a wealth of information about recovery time and expectations for the procedure right at their fingertips.
Dr. LeRoy adds that patients can also directly contact qualified, experienced professionals for expert advice, a process that has been expedited by the introduction and development of social media. “Social Media is personal. Patients can ask questions and get expert opinions now as opposed to throwing their question out on a message board, as done previously, and receiving feedback from unknown individuals.”
Reaching 100,000 Twitter followers presents a unique chance to provide a vast number of patients with the information they need regarding plastic surgery and its benefits, says Dr. LeRoy. He adds that he hopes to continue striving for personalized, quality patient care as he expands the reach of his practice.
