Until recently, if you wanted a consultation for cosmetic surgery, there was only one way to get it: visit a doctor’s office. Well, forget about the traditional office visit because a cosmetic surgery consultation is just a click away. Reported by the New York Times, the new online platform, Zwivel offers client’s a virtual visit. Dallas Texas surgeon, Rod Rohrich says Zwivel is the driving force for consultations anywhere. This new platform allows confidential chat consultations that are more affordable for clients, and doctors are finding they can fit more “chat” patients into their daily schedule.
“Traditional models are changing and clients find that the new mobile consults allow for flexibility and efficiency,” says Rohrich. Besides the tele-medicine chat feature, Zwivel also allows prospective clients to search through their database of doctors. Clients can verify doctor credentials on Facebook and forward pictures for evaluation, as well as ask questions regarding various cosmetic procedures.
