I strive to provide customized, top-notch plastic surgery to my Palo Alto-area patients, and with today’s technology, I’m also able to share my knowledge with other people both near and far. If you’ve done any amount of research on a cosmetic procedure, you’ve probably already discovered RealSelf.com. This site is an invaluable resource for plastic surgery patients, connecting them with doctors from all over the world and giving them a platform to share their stories and experiences.
Earlier this year, I was honored by being named one of the RealSelf 100, a group of physicians recognized for promoting patient communication and education on the site. Because I understand the importance of patient education, I’ve taken the time to contribute responses to more than 900 questions from RealSelf users. I enjoy helping patients, and I enjoy helping them make better and more informed decisions regarding cosmetic and reconstructive surgery options.
A strong RealSelf presence is just as important for a doctor’s potential patients as it is for people who live on the other side of the country. People who are researching local surgeons can read unbiased reviews from previous patients and get a sense of a doctor’s personality and specialties through the answers he or she provides on the site. I’m proud to be a part of a thriving community that promotes honest patient education and an open dialogue about plastic surgery.
