Miami, FL – March 1st, 2016
Local Plastic Surgeon Dr. Hochstein is one of 500 doctors in the nation to receive the prestigious RealSelf 500 Award, out of nearly 13,000 board certified specialists with a presence on RealSelf—the leading online community helping people make confident choices in elective cosmetic procedures.
In a time when 1 in 4 U.S. adults share their health experiences on social media channels, the medical professionals that made the 2015 RealSelf 500 are recognized both for having an outstanding record of consumer feedback and for providing credible, valuable insights in response to consumer questions about elective cosmetic treatments, plastic surgery, dentistry and more.
Passion and dedication are what set Dr. Hochstein apart from other board-certified plastic surgeons. Patient care is and always will be his number one priority. He co-authored a paper with the renowned Dr. D. Ralph Millard on the peri-operative care of the plastic surgery patient. Dr. Hochstein is ABPS (American Board of Plastic Surgery) board certified in plastic surgery because he is committed to providing his patients with the safest, most comfortable care possible. Since establishing his thriving plastic surgery practice, Dr. Hochstein has performed over twelve thousand surgeries. He was even awarded Allergan’s Black Diamond Award, which is only granted to the highest level breast augmentation providers. Over 15 years of training and experience have provided Dr. Hochstein with the skills necessary to achieve countless beautiful and natural results.
“In 2015, these 500 doctors collectively impacted tens of millions of consumers, with nearly 30% of our total doctor content posted by this relatively small group,” said Tom Seery, RealSelf founder and CEO. “When I started RealSelf, many doctors questioned why they should ‘give away’ their expertise ‘for free’ on the web. Now, eight 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.”
