This is the coolest comment I have ever received from one of my videos.

In this video I discuss a case I handled involving a young boy. The doctors failed to timely diagnose a twisting of his testicle, also known as testicular torsion.

As a result, the doctors missed the window of opportunity to correct the twist. The blood supply had been cut off for too long causing the testicle to die.

In this video comment, this man actually said “…I had only six hours to live, but I made it through by surgery. Now I know what this was thanks to you…”

That is absolutely awesome. Who knew that an educational video, designed to help teach my ideal client and consumers could actually help someone with that particular condition. That is really, really cool.

I have also received comments in some of my videos where the viewer will start by saying “Thank you doctor for providing…”

I don’t play a doctor on TV or pretend to be one. Every one of my videos starts out by telling the viewer that I’m a NY Medical Malpractice & Personal Injury Trial attorney.

When a viewer leaves a comment on your YouTube video, make sure you thank them. It’s a common courtesy that generates good will.

This comment left a smile on my face all day.

  • What an incredible tribute to the value of consumer oriented marketing. People aren’t stupid ;Give them the informaton where they can get it. It not only empowers them but it will be “bread upon the water” and eventually reward the lawyer and help the public’s perception of the profession.

  • Thanks David. I agree with you. Give consumers information they need.
    That’s been a problem with lawyers for years. Nobody wanted to give information away and instead required a person to actually make an appointment and come into the office before revealing how cases worked. It’s no secret. All lawyers know. The public should too.

    How about sharing one of your great ideas about how you give potential clients information that empowers them to learn more.
