    Average response time: 2 days 1 hour 34 minutes

    What's this? This is the average amount of time that it takes lately for this provider to respond to a patient for consideration. The way it works, is when a client expresses interest in receiving services from a provider, the provider must accept the client as a patient into their practice. Our one-of-a-kind platform makes it so simple! You'll complete a questionnaire, and your responses will be presented to the providers that you're considering. The purpose of this process of allowing providers to select their patients ensures that expectations are in line, and it gives you a chance to get to know each other. This unique process makes it easier for clients, especially those with complex cases, to get approved for the procedure they desire, than more traditional methods. With our easy to use platform, you're not on your own.
