VECTRA 3D is the centerpiece of our aesthetic consultations, and the ViewMyConsult web portal is invaluable for sharing 3D simulations with my patients while keeping track of their interest.
When leading plastic surgeon Dr. William P. Adams Jr. wanted a way to extend the reach of his patient consultations, the VECTRA 3D user looked no further than to Canfield Scientific’s ViewMyConsult, the company’s web-based portal that provides patients with secure remote access to consultation images and simulations.
One of the original users of 3D technology, Dr. Adams was instrumental in developing and improving Canfield’s VECTRA 3D. “In the past five years, there has been a significant improvement in the technology. We produce 3D simulations that are 98% accurate to our post-surgery results. During the development and refinement we worked with Canfield engineers to refine VECTRA technology and we have been using it ever since.”
So when the company launched ViewMyConsult four years ago, Dr. Adams was an early adopter. Now, patients of his Dallas plastic surgery practice use the secure access option to view their 3D images and simulations – anytime, anywhere, while making confident decisions about their prospective surgeries.
The portal also allows Dr. Adams and his staff the flexibility to connect more frequently with patients. “It gives us a good indication of their level of interest and lets us know when we should circle back with them,” added Dr. Adams.
Advanced imaging technology, accurate 3D simulations and the private client portal all contribute to patient comfort and education. “My patients are very visual. They want to be able to see what you are going to do before you do it,” said Dr. Adams. “ViewMyConsult allows us to reinforce the office visit by sharing the simulations we discussed, and it allows my patients to discuss their consultation with the people who are important to them.”
ViewMyConsult is a value-added service included with Canfield Care® agreements at no additional charge.
