Did you know that you can get free medical advice on hundreds of health topics from expert physicians? Well you can, including advice from Leif Rogers, MD.
Avvo.com is a community of physicians (and lawyers) that answer questions directly from the public and has been featured by well-known publications such as the New York Times, USA Today and Healthcare Review. The site’s function is similar to a social media site, where you can search for profiles, experience and reviews of physicians.
In addition to the doctor search and “free answer” sections, there are also a multitude of health articles pertaining to every area of plastic surgery and reconstruction available for patient education. All of this is offered at no cost to the Avvo user and at no profit to the physician.
Dr. Rogers is a featured physician and contributor to the Avvo site and is available to answer questions, posed directly by patients about medical concerns within his specialty area of cosmetic surgery, reconstructive surgery and non-invasive techniques in the aesthetic field.
Dr. Rogers has long been an advocate of patient education and encourages patients to research the best options available before seeking plastic or reconstructive procedures. An educated patient often means a more positive result for their procedure. This is why Dr. Rogers is participating in Avvo, to help patients inform themselves, even if they are not his patients – he will answer their questions freely as part of an effort to support access to good information for everyone, everywhere.
Being better informed improves the patient’s ability to communicate what they need and desire, helps them choose the right physician for their procedure and aids in preparation and recovery.
