Most people resort to Google for assistance on health challenges, and why? Who is to blame for the truncating faith of patients in doctors nowadays? The six-month-long waiting list? Or the fact that patients believe they have a better chance of getting their queries resolved from a search engine rather than their doctor?
While all the factors mentioned above are responsible for these changing dynamics, the last factor is the biggest culprit, and Dr. Rena Malik believes so too. As a urologist, Dr. Malik has repeatedly seen how many patients leave the office without thoroughly understanding their problem or treatment plan. She believes this not only impacts the patient-doctor relationship but also decreases the overall efficacy of the treatment.
Thus, in an effort to help simplify health education, Dr. Malik decided to avail the benefits of social media. She created a YouTube channel and started posting videos on diverse medical issues, with her main focus being on urological topics. Through her videos, Rena was not only disseminating medical literacy but was also helping fight misinformation on matters related to urological and sexual health.
Through her channel, Rena acquired the love and respect of people worldwide. Her content profoundly impacts people who had previously failed to understand their medical conditions. Dr. Rena Malik’s journey to success was not untroubled; being a full-time doctor and a mother of two made it hard for her to keep up with her venture. However, Rena pushed through and paved her way to becoming one of the most influential medical YouTubers.
Dr. Rena Malik undoubtedly deserves the appreciation and respect she has received from fellow doctors and patients around the globe. Her dedication to serving people will be recognized and followed by many for years to come.
