Michele Garber: How to improve patient outcomes with better communication

In her 50s, Michele Garber decided to get a neck- and facelift - and bitterly regretted her decision. She wasn’t satisfied with her result, her recovery was difficult and she had questions about the integrity of her surgeon. She realized that she could have used a guide to help her pick a more appropriate surgeon, manage her expectations and help her recovery.
And that’s how she became a patient advocate, helping other plastic surgery patients navigate the highly complex choices available.

On today’s episode of How I Scaled My Aesthetic clinic, we discuss the lessons that your clinic can learn through her extensive work with patients...

For example, why patients sometimes pick the wrong clinicians… What they often don’t understand about their procedures…. And the common mistakes that clinics make in communicating with their patients.

Much of our discussion focused on how clinic owners can make their marketing both effective and ethical:
