Tweeting Aids Plastic Surgeon's Practice
Dr. Oleh Slupchynskyj, Director of The Aesthetic Institute of New York and New Jersey, recently started using Twitter as a means of disseminating the latest information in facial plastic surgery techniques, new products and beauty trends to his patients and anyone else interested in facial rejuvenation.
“I believe that using Twitter connects me to my patients on a more personal level. It provides a fun, easy way to pass along information that I find useful or interesting,” reports Slupchynskyj. He continues, “I want my patients to feel comfortable communicating with me, and I think that using Twitter can help break down the stereotypical coldness sometimes associated with the medical profession.”
Slupchynskyj's patients are not the only ones who benefit from this method of communication. In addition to informing his current patients, Slupchynskyj's tweets enable potential patients, or those just acquainting themselves with cosmetic procedures, to hear updates directly from a facial plastic surgeon in an anonymous forum. However, those that choose to follow Slupchynskyj anonymously may soon desire to become patients, as the Doctor also tweets offers for free, non-surgical rejuvenative treatments
