Dr. Chad Prather of Dermasurgery Center Baton Rouge Joins 85 Plastic Surgeons
"We are delighted to welcome Dr. Prather to our growing list of medical practitioners around the country now numbering 86," said Dr. Jonathan Kaplan, a board certified plastic surgeon and founder of BuildMyBod.com. "More than 60 percent of U.S. adults use the internet to find medical information. Over 30 percent of medical searches are about healthcare providers."
"I have known about BuildMyBod.com for some time and was happy to finally convince Dr. Kaplan that he should open the site to dermatologists," said Dr. Prather. "We believe that in an era of emphasis on transparency, patients deserve to know how much procedures cost before they waste time and money on a visit that may go nowhere because of cost." He added that BuildMyBod is definitely in the best interest of patients who are curious about elective procedures and their costs.
Plastic surgery and dermatology pricing is of immense online interest. According to Google search data, out of the millions of Google searches that occur monthly within the plastic surgery space, 10 percent of those searches are explicitly seeking procedure pricing and cost information. When consumers visit BuildMyBod.com, they can determine the total estimated costs of procedures that interest them before they enter the physician's office for a consultation.
