A doge is an elected chief of state lordship, the ruler of the Republic in many of the Italian city states during the medieval and renaissance periods, in the Italian "crowned republics".
The word is from a Venetian word that descends from the Latin dux (as do the English duke and the standard Italian duce and duca), meaning "leader", especially in a military context. The wife of a doge is styled a dogaressa. 
The ASDS Annual Meeting for 2016 was held in New Orleans, LA, organized by ASDS (American Society for Dermatologic Surgery). Jennifer Kilkenny, Managing Director of Total Social Solutions, joined a panel that included celebrity dermatologist Dr. Doris Day to discuss reputation monitoring and management. Specifically, Jennifer was invited to teach dermatologists how to manage online reviews on websites like Yelp and Google.
Organized and managed by Drs. Mona Gohara and Ellen Marmur, the session was full of excellent tips for dermatologic surgeons struggling to promote themselves on social media, obtain press coverage, and manage their online reviews.
Managing online reviews is a struggle for any business, particularly for medical professionals. The usual tips for getting and responding to reviews doesn’t work in an industry that ensures total privacy for clients and patients. This makes reputation management, particularly responding to negative online reviews, problematic for many medical professionals. This is why ASDS and ADAM (Association of Dermatology Administrators and Managers) have both asked Jennifer to speak on this topic.
The presentation itself was a very in depth coverage of reputation monitoring and management, specifically focused on how to handle negative reviews in the most productive way. Here are some of the highlights your practice should be focused on:
