San Francisco, CA (12/10/15) – Dr. Peter Karsant, of Karsant Dentistry in San Francisco, announced today his collaboration with BuildMyBod Health, the revolutionary marketplace that is changing the way consumers shop for healthcare.
BuildMyBod, a medical cost estimator for prospective patients and lead generator for doctors, houses the pricing information for over 3,000 procedures and services across the US and in Australia; and plans to expand into Canada by the end of the year. Dr. Karsant is the first dentist to join its growing list of providers across all medical specialties.
Price Transparency in healthcare, or the lack thereof, remains a hot topic nationwide, and Dr. Karsant wanted to be on the forefront of the solution. “More and more uninsured patients inquire about the services we provide. We offer those individuals slight discounts to help subsidize the cost, but up until now, there was no good way to provide them with the information they were looking for in a reliable and mutually beneficial fashion,” says Karsant. Now, prospective patients can get a quote instantly from my practice website, and my office staff can follow up with them afterwards. It’s a win-win.”
In addition to offering the pricing information for reconstructive and cosmetic dental procedures, consumers can also purchase at-home teeth whitening kits from the cost estimator on drpeterkarsantdds.com. The online purchase process is a major patient satisfier and Dr. Karsant is excited to be one of the first dentists to offer it to his patients.
BuildMyBod continues to leave its mark in the healthcare space by making price transparency in healthcare easily accessible through advances in information technology. With approximately 150 providers in the provider network, consumers can both check pricing and purchase procedure and services straight from BuildMyBod.com, the doctor’s website, or the BuildMyBod iPhone/iPad app. Visit the website to learn more. BuildMyBod Health also produces a podcast that showcases the latest insights from across the healthcare spectrum.
