Dr. LoVerme Enhances Online Patient Experience with Facebook
At his New Jersey plastic surgery practice, The LoVerme Center, Dr. Paul LoVerme has joined the aesthetic healthcare social media revolution to enhance patient communication and the patient-doctor relationship. Dr. LoVerme says he hopes patients will embrace the practice’s multi-layered online community, whether they are searching for more information on a particular cosmetic procedure, or hoping to connect with fellow patients following a procedure such as BOTOX injections ® or breast augmentation in New Jersey.
Paul LoVerme, MD, a board-certified plastic surgeon in New Jersey, is joining the aesthetic healthcare social media arena because he says he believes it will strengthen the overall patient-doctor relationship and streamline his practice’s ability to communicate with its patients in real-time. Dr. LoVerme says he hopes the practice’s new social network will provide an educational resource for current and potential patients to rely on when researching various cosmetic enhancement procedures, ranging from nonsurgical facial rejuvenation to rapid recovery breast augmentation and liposuction.
By incorporating and maintaining a strong presence on a number of stages online, such as Facebook, and a practice blog, Dr. LoVerme says he and The LoVerme Center team will be able to communicate with patients and support their informational needs more effectively. He says he understands the significant commitment involved in deciding to undergo cosmetic enhancement, which is why he hopes to provide a complete resource dedicated to educating patients to further develop their cosmetic surgery expectations. Dr. LoVerme says combining the comprehensive procedural descriptions contained within his website with the firsthand experience available through active participation in the LoVerme Center social network can provide that type of support.
Dr. LoVerme says patients can begin their research into the realm of possibility inherent in the aesthetic enhancement industry—ranging from the dramatic transformations available with procedures such as liposuction and or a tummy tuck, to more subtle, nonsurgical cosmetic enhancements with dermal fillers or BOTOX Cosmetic®—on his practice’s new social media communities. Ultimately, he says his desire to create these communities lies in his dedication to strengthening the patient-doctor relationship and improving overall patient care: “One of the things that sets my practice apart is the belief that an educated person makes a much better patient. Enhancing one’s appearance is a journey, and cosmetic surgery may be at the beginning of that journey or anywhere along the route but it’s never an isolated event. Surgery to create a more youthful and improved appearance must be integrated into a complete lifestyle and wellness program.”
