Dr. Cameron Chesnut Wins RealSelf 500 Award

Spokane Dermatological Surgeon Recognized as Top Social Influencer in Cosmetic Medicine

Our own Dr. Cameron Chesnut 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.

Dr. Chesnut is board-certified in dermatology and fellowship-trained in Mohs micrographic surgery, reconstructive plastic surgery, and cosmetic surgery. A leader in the fields of dermatologic and cosmetic surgery, Dr. Chesnut is an award-winning speaker and has been invited by his peers to present nationally on numerous cosmetic and reconstructive topics. He is a regular contributor to the surgical literature, has authored several book chapters, and has been recognized for his research in both dermatologic surgery and lasers.

“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.”

Dr. Chesnut is an expert contributor to RealSelf, and to date has posted 212 expert answers to questions on RealSelf. Each month people from all over world ask important aesthetic-related questions, such as "When will the redness and dents from fractional CO2 laser heal?" Dr. Chesnut also maintains a patient star rating of five out of five stars in RealSelf reviews. For the full list of RealSelf 500 Award winners, visit http://www.realself.com/RS500.
