LOS ANGELES, Aug. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- DermDash, the online cosmetic procedure marketplace launched on July 28, 2016, now allows users to schedule a free consultation before purchasing a procedure. Consultations have proven vital to the cosmetic procedure process. Patients are rarely comfortable scheduling a procedure that involves chemicals, lasers, injectables, and the like without meeting the practitioner ahead of time.
"Patients need to meet with the physician prior to receiving the procedure to get an appropriate assessment of what they need," says Ben Behnam MD, Board Certified Dermatologist. "DermDash now allows users to schedule a free cosmetic consultation through the app with any of the doctors on the platform. Patients don't have to call the doctor's office and be placed on hold just to make an appointment."
Before DermDash, patients needed to schedule consultations in order to get a price quote from a doctor. That was easier said than done though; scheduling a consultation involved visiting doctors' websites, looking up reviews, and making phone calls. Savvy shoppers scheduled a number of consultations to compare prices and trustworthiness, which meant driving around the city to four or five appointments.
DermDash solved the pricing problem by providing transparent, real-time pricing for cosmetic procedures, but the issue of trustworthiness remained. DermDash already had doctor ratings from a variety of user-based websites and also listed each doctor's qualifications, but without meeting the doctor and seeing the facilities, the questions of trust and comfort remained. So DermDash solved that problem too, with the new free consultation feature.
In the updated version of the DermDash app, the pricing, reviews, and qualifications remain, allowing users to narrow down which clinics and medspas seem like the best fit, and schedule those consultations through the app. There's no limit to the number of consultations that a user can schedule, but with all the information DermDash provides, there's no need for more than one. This freedom allows users to get a satisfying sense of each doctor and medspa and ultimately make the best decision.
