Now more than ever, Americans are expressing interest in consulting with their Doctors when and where it is convenient for them. Recent reports show that 60% of United States households with internet access are interested in consulting with their Doctor either online or by phone. This is now even more relevant and timely considering the recent Coronavirus situation.
Dr. Mark A. Marion, DMD, FAGD is an 8-time award-winning Pittsburgh Magazine Top Dentist and Top Cosmetic Dentist. He is available by phone for a:
- DENTAL CONSULT: Patients can send a photo or video for Dr. Marion to evaluate. If you are an existing patient, Dr. Marion can also remotely via his laptop access your patient records including prior xrays, photos, and clinical notes. Then, you will speak with Dr. Mark Marion from the comfort of your home, office, car or wherever a dental emergency might occur. Spend less time painfully waiting and more time getting answers from Dr. Marion.Further Dr. Marion can diagnose your problem and get you started feeling better quickly, which may include an e-script for an antibiotic and/or non-narcotic pain prescription. This prevents patients from going to a Hospital Emergency Room (ER) or enduring the pain when they can more quickly get a prescription from Dr. Marion. Toothache was the top complaint bringing patients to the ER.
Unfortunately for patients, most ERs in the U.S. are not equipped to treat dental problems. Most patients seeking dental care in ERs receive only pain medications or antibiotics and are referred to a dentist in their community. Dr. Marion prefers to keep his patients safe by limiting unnecessary ER visits which also saves hospital resources for those in serious need, especially so at this time.
This also saves patients time and money at the ER. The average cost of an ER visit can range from $400 – $1,500. Compare this to a dental virtual consult starting at $84.
When dental work is needed, appointments are scheduled as soon as possible with Dr. Marion in his beautiful, high-tech dental office.
