William J. Koenig is one of 1,000 board-certified doctors, and the only one in Rochester, New York, to be inducted into the RealSelf Hall of Fame, an honor recognizing the highest-rated and most active doctors on RealSelf, the leading online marketplace to learn about cosmetic treatments and connect with medical aesthetic providers. For eight years, the annual RealSelf 100 and 500 awards recognized doctors with outstanding records of high patient ratings who have given back to the RealSelf community by providing credible, valuable insights in response to consumer questions about elective cosmetic treatments ranging from surgical procedures to minimally invasive technologies to cosmetic dentistry.
For the first time ever, RealSelf celebrates the Hall of Fame, a culmination of eight years of recognitions made through the RealSelf 100 and 500 award programs. To be included in the RealSelf Hall of Fame, doctors must have received a RealSelf 100 or RealSelf 500 award in the past. The program, which first launched in 2010, honors the top-rated and most engaged board-certified aesthetic doctors on RealSelf.
Doctors are ranked in three categories: earning patient reviews, answering consumer questions, and sharing before and after treatment photos. In order to be recognized in any given year, doctors must maintain the distinction of Top Doctor or Top Contributor and uphold an average rating above four stars. “The RealSelf Hall of Fame honors the achievements of board-certified aesthetic doctors who consistently put the consumer first,” said Tom Seery, Founder and CEO of RealSelf. “It’s my pleasure to recognize this elite group of doctors for their significant contributions on RealSelf and their high standards in patient satisfaction.”
Every year, millions of consumers visit RealSelf to find aesthetic doctors and research elective cosmetic treatments ranging from surgical procedures like rhinoplasty and breast augmentation to nonsurgical treatment options such as injectable fillers and facial lasers. By answering consumer questions, sharing before and after photos, and encouraging their patients to leave open and honest reviews, RealSelf Hall of Fame honorees have played a vital role in helping consumers make informed and confident choices about medical aesthetic treatments.
“Plastic surgery is not an easy fix or an isolated experience. I always encourage my patients to be actively involved in the entire process. The more involved patients are, the better the surgical outcome and the more satisfied they are with their results. Plastic surgery is a lifelong commitment and should be partnered with efforts to improve the quality of one’s life. In addition to what I recommend surgically, I encourage patients to have healthy habits, improve their diet, exercise regularly and have good balance in their lives. This holistic outlook results in satisfied patients who are invested in making the most out of their lives. It’s a privilege to be part of this process with my patients,” said Dr. William Koenig.
