Thanks to my friend Bunny Ellerin (pictured above) for including me on a blog post for the ZocDoc blog entitled, "Six Physicians To Follow On Social Media." Bunny is the Senior Vice President at a company called InTouch Solutions and she is also Co-founder of NYC Health Business Leaders. I was given the opportunity to speak to the NYC group last year in this you tube speech called, "Physicians Must Be On Social Media." Here is what she said about me in the article...
This early adopter has gone from being Doctor Anonymous to being... Dr. Mike Sevilla. In between, he used Family Medicine Rocks as his home base, where he tirelessly advocated for his specialty - and primary care in general. Recently, he took a break from social media to regroup (many of us were sad), but came back stronger than ever (which made us happy).
Dr. Sevilla uses every form of social media: blog, podcasts, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Vine, Instagram - name it, he'll try it. Wherever he is, he's one to follow for his honest, funny, human musings about family medicine and life in general.
Thanks to Bunny for these very kind words. We met in person a few years ago at the Mayo Clinic Social Media Summit and have kept in touch (pun intended, hehe) ever since then. I've said this before, but the best things about social media, at least for me, are the people that I've met and the places that I have been. I'm a lucky guy, let me tell ya.
