HOUSTON, TX – FEBRUARY 19, 2016 – Local physician Dr. C. Bob Basu is one of 100 doctors in the nation to receive the prestigious RealSelf 100 Award, out of nearly 13,000 board certified specialists with a presence on RealSelf—the leading online community helping people make confident choices in elective cosmetic procedures.
In a time when 1 in 4 U.S. adults share their health experiences on social media channels, the medical professionals that made the 2015 RealSelf 100 are recognized both for having an outstanding record of consumer feedback and for providing credible, valuable insights in response to consumer questions about elective cosmetic treatments, plastic surgery, dentistry and more.
Dr. Basu is a national leader in his field. He has served on the Board of Directors of the American Society of Plastic Surgeon (ASPS).

Given his expertise in patient safety in cosmetic surgery, he also serves on the Board of Directors of The American Association of Accreditation for Ambulatory Surgical Facilities (AAAASF) – the entity that certifies the safety and quality of cosmetic surgery centers.
“The doctors receiving this award were among the top 1% of our 13,000-member doctor community in 2015,” said Tom Seery, RealSelf founder and CEO. “When I started RealSelf, many doctors questioned why they should ‘give away’ their expertise ‘for free’ on the web. Now, eight years later — and with over one million doctor answers on our platform — we are proud of the standard this select group has set. They’re leading the way by empowering millions of consumers to gain access to the information they need to make smart and confident health and beauty decisions.”
