PARAMUS, N.J., Dec. 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Gary D. Breslow, distinguished board certified NJ plastic surgeon, has been named '2015 Entrepreneur of the Year' by Plastic Surgery Practice Magazine for the development of his innovative online cosmetic consultation platform, Zwivel.
"Zwivel introduces efficiency into the frustratingly inefficient cosmetic consultation process. We are thrilled to be recognized by Plastic Surgery Practice," says Dr. Breslow, who is Zwivel's Founder and CEO. "This unique platform enables the patient to get to know a plastic surgeon before they come into the office, which leads to shorter, more productive in-office consultations, increased conversion rates for cosmetic doctors, and less time wasted for both cosmetic patients and doctors."
Officially launched in 2015, Zwivel was created as a modern-day remedy for the inefficient process of cosmetic consultations, for both doctors and patients. Zwivel streamlines the information-gathering process to securely collect a patient's procedural inquiries, medical profile and timeframe for scheduling an aesthetic procedure, enabling virtual "mini consults" from the comfort of one's home. Through Zwivel's HIPAA compliant platform, cosmetic patients can indicate their concerns and desired procedures, upload photos and recorded videos, and then start a cosmetic consultation online with top cosmetic doctors in their chosen area, right from their computer or smartphone, saving time for both the doctor and potential patient.
Currently, Zwivel has more than 750 plastic surgeons on board, and more joining every day. The company recently teamed up with CareCredit and Prosper Healthcare Lending, and will soon be revealing an upgraded, enhanced, version of the platform, Zwivel Premium. With its growing success, Zwivel's core objective is to not only sign up more doctors, but to also attract more consumers through increased localized outreach efforts in key plastic surgery-centric locales like Orange County, CA; Miami, Palm Beach, and Boca Raton, FL; Westchester and Nassau County, NY; and Bergen County, NJ.
Zwivel is transforming the way cosmetic patients search for and connect with cosmetic doctors. Through Zwivel's easy-to-use, online platform, cosmetic patients can search for and select from multiple cosmetic doctors and start their cosmetic consultation with the selected doctors online from their computer or smartphone, getting opinions and cosmetic procedure recommendations with estimated fees, before committing to a full, in-office consultation. The entire process is completely private and secure, HIPAA-compliant, and one-to-one between each patient and each doctor. Zwivel is free for both cosmetic patients and doctors via Zwivel or the free Zwivel app for iPhone and Android. For more information, visit www.Zwivel.com.
