Dallas Texas Weight Loss Surgeon Using Social Media To Reach Out to Patients
Date:11/26/2009

Dr. David Kim of the Live Life Again Center, a practice offering weight loss surgery in Dallas, is one of a growing number of physicians who are taking advantage of popular social networking sites to connect with individuals who are interested in surgical weight loss treatment to fight morbid obesity. Dr. Kim is utilizing Facebook to share before-and-after photos and information about his practice with the community.

Dallas, TX (Vocus) November 26, 2009 -- A prominent Dallas weight loss surgeon and founder of the Live Life Again Center for Bariatric Surgery is reaching out to current, former, and prospective patients through the popular social networking site Facebook. By establishing a Facebook page for his practice, Dr. David Kim seeks to provide information in a convenient and easily accessible format that many patients are already familiar and comfortable with. With over 300 million users, Facebook has quickly become one of the most popular social media sites in the world. Dr. Kim hopes to use its interactive capabilities to educate others on the benefits of weight loss surgery and the advantages of treatment at his practice.

Although his practice already has a robust website, Dr. Kim plans to use his new, expanded online presence to reach patients more effectively and provide them with helpful links and resources on bariatric surgery. Dr. Kim says he wants to educate men and women who are considering bariatric surgery in Dallas and the surrounding region on the results that are possible for them to achieve at the Live Life Again Center. “Our patients…lose weight to get to the target weight that they want to reach, under very safe circumstances, but without the hunger that they struggle with when they don’t have surgery.”

Dr. Kim and his staff provide comprehensive care for patients, from pre-operative “Bariatric University” seminars to post-operative nutrition and exercise counseling. Before-and-after photos and patient testimonials are included on Dr. Kim’s Facebook page to provide web visitors with examples of the kind of results that patients can expect from treatment.

Through Facebook, patients can learn about Dr. Kim’s practice as well as the different procedures that he performs, including LAP-BAND® Adjustable Gastric Banding and gastric sleeve resection (VSG) in Dallas. His Facebook page also makes it possible for visitors to interact with Dr. Kim and his staff and engage with others who have already undergone weight loss surgery. Facebook allows Dr. Kim to keep an ongoing dialogue with patients and for them to provide comments and feedback of their own.

Dr. Kim says Facebook is one more tool that can be used to reach out to those who suffer from morbid obesity, and let them know that there are safe and effective treatments to help them fight it. He says that with the Live Life Again Center’s expansive program designed to help patients through every step of the surgical weight loss process, including counseling and support both before and after the procedure, as well as on-going follow-up care, he hopes his Facebook page will help give web visitors useful information and the knowledge that they are not alone in the battle against morbid obesity.
