In today’s digital age, finding a reputable plastic surgeon or aesthetic treatment can be a daunting task. Traditional methods such as word-of-mouth recommendations are becoming increasingly less reliable, leaving patients to rely on online reviews and search engines to find the right provider for their needs.
Yes Doctor, a leading online platform for patients seeking aesthetic treatments, is looking to change this with the introduction of advanced search engine capabilities on their platform. This new feature allows users to easily find doctors and treatments that match their specific needs and preferences, making the journey toward achieving aesthetic goals more affordable, seamless, and stress-free.
“We are thrilled to unveil our new search engine capabilities, and discovery engine, on the Yes Doctor platform.” said Amin Shameli, CEO and Co-Founder of Yes Doctor, “We are constantly working to improve the functionality and user-friendliness of our platform, and we can’t wait for our users to experience the benefits of these new enhancements.”
The new search engine feature utilizes artificial intelligence to scan through a vast database of providers and treatments, taking into account factors such as location, specialty, and reviews to provide users with the most relevant results. This not only saves patients valuable time and energy but also helps to ensure that they are receiving treatments from reputable and qualified providers.
“This makes it easier for patients to find the right treatments and procedures for their specific needs,” says Tim Sayed, Chief Medical Officer and Co-Founder of Yes Doctor. “The search engine capabilities, and discovery engine, on this platform will help patients make informed decisions about their health and well-being.”
In recent years, there has been a significant increase in the demand from patients searching for medical services online, including plastic surgery and aesthetic medical procedures. This trend is driven in part by the convenience of being able to research and compare options remotely, and the increased availability of information and reviews online. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, demand has also increased for non-invasive and minimally invasive procedures, according to a new study from ASPS.
As a result, more and more patients are turning to the internet to research and find medical providers, and platforms like Yes Doctor are becoming increasingly popular.
In addition to the AI capabilities, Yes Doctor also recently launched new solutions to help provide added price transparency to the aesthetic treatment industry. For specific non-invasive procedures, patients will be able to see a variety of predetermined treatment options with a fixed price, along with a monthly payment plan.
The company says they are committed to providing convenient and affordable aesthetic treatment to patients, including efficient access to information to help them make informed decisions and a range of financing options to fit their budget. This also brings more price transparency to the market and also helps patients to pay low monthly payments.
Millennials and Gen-Z have been especially interested and have been early adopters of the monthly payment and financing options, commonly named ‘Buy Now, Pay Later’ by e-commerce brands. Yes Doctor’s unique financing approach could help the aesthetic treatment industry cater to these younger demographics as they grow to need services.
Now, Yes Doctor is capitalizing on this trend by providing patients with a transparent and easy-to-use platform for finding and comparing medical treatments and providers. By leveraging its new discovery engine and other technology, the platform allows patients to search for treatments and providers based on location, specialty, and cost.
The platform also provides patients with an estimate of the out-of-pocket costs they can expect to pay for a specific procedure, helping them to make more informed decisions about their healthcare.
Yes Doctor’s approach is not only providing patients with more information but also helping them to save money, by allowing them to compare the prices of different providers. This also provides patients with a clear idea of the total cost they are going to pay. Many experts in the plastic surgery space have cited a loss in business from clients undergoing a consultation, and then facing “sticker shock” when seeing the total cost.
There has been another unique shift in society that may help accelerate the growth of companies like Yes Doctor. The COVID-19 pandemic has increased the shift towards telemedicine, as patients and healthcare providers alike have had to adapt to social distancing measures and limited in-person visits. As a result, many patients have turned to online platforms to meet with doctors, receive initial consultations, and even receive medical diagnoses or treatments.
Startups like Yes Doctor have capitalized on this trend by providing added virtual communication options for matching patients with providers that allow patients to connect with doctors and specialists remotely. The platform uses video conferencing technology to enable patients to have face-to-face consultations with board-certified plastic surgeons, often done from the comfort of the patient’s own homes.
“We believe that telemedicine is the future of healthcare,” said Behnam Analui COO, and Co-founder of Yes Doctor. “Our platform allows patients to receive the same level of care and convenience as in-person visits, while also providing doctors with the tools they need to make informed decisions about their patients’ care. With telemedicine, we can reduce healthcare costs and improve patient outcomes, making healthcare more affordable and accessible for everyone.”
With these new enhancements, Yes Doctor continues to solidify its position as the go-to destination for patients seeking aesthetic treatments, making it easier than ever for them to find the right provider for their needs.
