Breast Cancer Surgeon Dr. Jay Harness Surpasses One Million Video Views

breast cancer surgeon Dr. Jay Harness of Orange, California PHOENIX, March 6, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The first ever social media show BreastCancerAnswers.com, has hit 1,000,000 video views since its launch in late November, 2011. The show allows breast cancer patients from the dominant social networks (Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Google+, etc.) to submit breast cancer questions, and get a video response back from leading medical experts.

“It is really humbling to see a million video views so quickly from people in need of breast cancer information online,” said Dr. Jay K. Harness, MD, FACS, the medical director for Breast Cancer Answers and a past president of The American Society of Breast Surgeons. “We are honored to answer questions in clear layman’s language and to provide patients, friends and loved ones with the latest information on breast cancer quickly at no cost.”

This highly interactive social media program eliminates the gap between breast cancer patients and top breast cancer experts, providing free and anonymous access to the latest medical information. Asking a question can help other women all over the world that are fighting the disease, as each video answer is archived into a Q & A library at BreastCancerAnswers.com.

“We are leveraging the power of the social media networks to eliminate the gap between the top experts and patients,” said Todd Hartley, president of WireBuzz, the digital marketing agency driving this campaign. “Educating patients is our mission and we are thrilled to know the audience is responding to our information.”

Each time a patient submits a new question, they receive an email with a video answering their question. These short Q & A responses, or episodes, are then published every weekday across the Internet and into the show’s growing Q & A video library. On BreastCancerAnswers.com patients also have access to the Dr. Harness Questions To Ask You Doctor – a user friendly form that can be downloaded, printed, and used during a patient’s next doctor’s appointment.

In addition to video views, the social media show continues to increase its following on Facebook and Twitter, providing two-way conversation between breast cancer patients and top doctors.
