10 Physicians To Follow On Twitter


Thanks so much to Michelle McNickle who included me in her article today entitled, "10 Physician To Follow On Twitter" on HealthCareIT News. She is a web content producer for the site. I was very pleasantly surprised to be Number Two on the list...

Toward the end of last month, Mike Sevilla, MD, spoke to a crowd of 100 at the Connecting Healthcare + Social Media Conference on why physicians ought to be on social media. Although multiple such outlets exist - Facebook, Google +, LinkedIn - none have appealed quite so strongly to physicians as twitter. Here are 10 physicans, in no particular order, who have mastered the art of twitter.

I'm honored to be part of a great group of physicians on twitter. If you're not already, follow all the physicians on this list. I'm always curious about following more great physicians on twitter. Who else should be on this list and why? Gimme some suggestions!
