John L LeRoy, MD, FACS, PC Featured in Atlanta Magazine
There are certain professionals who we’re very quick to trust, people who we may associate with having all the answers. Doctors are toward the top of this list. Often, people tend to see healthcare providers as almost magical, and assume that if they’re able to call themselves a doctor, they know everything there is to know about health. But it’s important for us to remind ourselves that not all doctors have the same amount of experience and expertise, which is why we need to know exactly who our doctors are and whether they’re truly experts in their field.
This month, I was featured in Atlanta Magazine in order to help all my patients (and potential future patients) get to know me better. Certain medical experiences and accomplishments in my career have been especially enlightening for me, so I’d like to highlight a few of them for you:
- Double board certification – I am extremely proud to have board certification in both Plastic Surgery and General Surgery. To become a double board-certified plastic surgeon, I had to demonstrate that I am highly proficient not only in the plastic surgery procedures that I perform every day, but also in general surgery, like the experience I gained during my fellowship at Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital. This gives me some extra experience and knowledge about an array of surgical procedures, allowing me to better understand and protect the health of my patient while giving them the realistic cosmetic results they’re seeking.
- Band Aid plastic surgery procedures – Throughout my career, I have developed a complete line of minimally-invasive procedures, including the Band Aid Tummy Tuck, Band Aid Liposuction, Band Aid Facelift, and many more. My patients have found these procedures to be just the answer they’re looking for when they want more natural-looking results with less downtime.
- Professional affiliations – Joining professional organizations (such as the American Medical Association, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the National Board of Medical Specialties, the Georgia Society of Plastic Surgeons, and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery) has been a great tool throughout my career. It has enabled me to stay up-to-date with all the latest plastic surgery developments and technology so that I can give my patients the absolute best combination of safe surgery and cosmetic results. If you want to stay up-to-date on developments in plastic surgery, you can easily do so by following me on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.
But even with my professional accolades, my proudest accomplishments are my satisfied patients. They allow me to do what I love every day and to help my patients be their most confident selves. So thank you to my past patients, and to my future patients as well, for giving me the privilege to work with you. You truly make my job more meaningful every day.
