Here is the verbatim text of the OUTSTANDING PRESS RELEASE of the Year:
Date: Thursday, February 1, 2018 at 9:41:29 AM Pacific Standard Time
From: Michelle Thompson
Boston’s beloved facial injector, Dr. Onir Spiegel, was the only doctor in Massachusetts named as RealSelf’s “Most Loved Injector Award for 2017.” RealSelf received over 20,000 nominations nationwide, and Dr. Spiegel is ranked in the TOP 25 for the U.S. Massachusetts isn’t typically one of the places you would think of when thinking of facial procedures, but with the growing popularity of fillers, people are careful to select a doctor who not only knows what she is doing but is a true expert in these treatments. Dr. Onir Spiegel also is a DOCTOR, and in fact, has two doctorates, in DDS and a PhD. RealSelf is the largest online destination to become informed about elective cosmetic treatments and to help find the right provider for your wants and needs. The injectable filler category is one of the fastest growing.

It was given a dramatic reading, at the event, by John Rennie, editor of Quanta magazine and former editor of Scientific American magazine. The audience responded with genteel, subdued emotion sustained by gentle applause.
