Every year RealSelf digs into data to find which doctors demonstrated an enduring commitment to patient education. They answer questions, post photos, and all around make sure the millions of visitors to RealSelf have the information they need to make major medical decisions. To recognize the contributions of these doctors, we created the RealSelf 100.
All told, the doctors featured on this year’s list spent an estimated 403 days and eight hours engaging on RealSelf. That’s nearly 10,000 hours used to enrich a community dedicated to confidence, education, and empowerment.
Also awarded this year: the RealSelf 500, featuring 400 additional physicians who also made significant contributions to consumer education. See who made the RealSelf 500: www.realself.com/RS500.
All told, these 500 doctors influenced tens of millions of consumers with nearly 30 percent of all doctor-created content in 2015 posted by this engaged group.
“When we started RealSelf, many doctors questioned why they should ‘give away’ their expertise ‘for free’ on the web,” says Tom Seery, RealSelf founder and CEO. “Now, nine years later — and with over one million doctor answers on our platform — we are proud of the standard this select group has set. They’re leading the way by empowering millions of consumers to gain access to the information they need to make smart and confident health and beauty decisions.”
