A TOP INFLUENCER IN COSMETIC MEDICINE (PLASTIC AND RECONSTRUCTIVE SURGERY)
We congratulate Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Vincent Lepore, once again, for special recognition from the online medical information site, Realself.com. This year, Dr. Lepore is among 500 doctors worldwide to receive a prestigious award honoring the top influencers on RealSelf.
This is the fourth time Dr. Lepore has been recognized for his ongoing commitment to patient education and engagement. He has previously been awarded the Realself 100 award (2012, 2013, 2015), and has been given the added designation of “Top Doctor” by the site.
Dr. Lepore is known for his ability to connect with his patients in a down to earth and ‘real’ manner. He extends that type of engagement by answering questions on Realself and elsewhere, submitted by medical consumers. To date, Dr. Lepore has answered more than 4,000 such inquiries. “I’m happy to engage with patients in this way, and support their efforts to do homework prior to making treatment decisions. It is definitely worthwhile to take the time to aid in patient education.”
[In addition to keeping patients informed and educated, Dr. Lepore owns and operates his busy practice, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Associates, located in San Jose, CA. He and his staff perform a full range of plastic surgery procedures, as well as minimally-invasive treatments. He offers Cosmetic Consultations, free of charge.
