VECTRA® 3D has definitely brought more patients, increased my conversion rate and improved patient satisfaction. The staff at Canfield's European office in Amsterdam is extremely helpful and their US based technicians can log in to my system remotely whenever I need them. They are always there, and I appreciate that in a company.
Even as young boy, Farid Kazem knew he wanted to be a doctor, as was his father. One day he found himself alone with his father's medical instruments, and a stuffed toy elephant became his first patient. He has learned a lot since then, and is careful never to leave his children alone with his own instruments. He has also developed a reputation as a skilled cosmetic plastic surgeon and for his expertise in both surgical and non-surgical procedures.
An early adopter of digital photography, Dr. Kazem selected Mirror medical imaging software to manage his clinical images. When Canfield launched VECTRA 3D, he quickly saw the possibilities for his plastic surgery practice. "Instead of showing patients before and after pictures of other people, this gave me the opportunity to show them how they would actually look. This gave them confidence to go ahead with the procedures, so my conversion rate increased."
Dr. Kazem is pleased at the way VECTRA 3D helps differentiate his practice and attract more patients. They are more satisfied as well. As he explains, "I always advise them that it's a simulation and that it's not 100% guaranteed, but my patients tell me that the result is exactly what I showed them, or even better. This has changed how people look at themselves, and how they can look into the future."
