Raleigh Physician Becomes First Doctor in North Carolina to Accept Bitcoin
A prominent physician based in Raleigh is the first physician in North Carolina to accept the virtual currency payment system for facial plastic surgery.
Few doctors in the United States are accepting bitcoin now, but since I see patients from all over the world, I'm excited about how this can be helpful. Raleigh, N.C. December 11, 2013 Adam Stein, M.D. became the first physician in North Carolina to accept Bitcoin for facial plastic surgery this week. Dr.Stein, a board-certified Facial Plastic Surgeon and Otolaryngologist-Head and Neck Surgeon and is also a member of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and a Fellow of the American Academy of Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery.
Dr. Stein sees patients from all over the country and even across the globe and hopes to "make it easier for patients to get access to care in as helpful a manner as possible by accepting a virtual currency."
"Anything that helps my patients get the highest quality treatment in a way they can afford and makes it easier for them, I am very pleased with that."
Dr. Stein has over 20 years of surgical experience and has been practicing the art of facial plastic surgery in the Raleigh-Durham area for nearly 14 years. To become a facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Stein underwent years of intensive training and surgical residency after completing medical school. Never satisfied with "good enough," Dr. Stein took his training a few steps further than most in order to gain exceptional skills and experience.
Dr.Stein's diverse training and extensive experience has made him one of the most sought-after physicians in his field. He hopes that accepting Bitcoin will open doors to treatment options and follow up care for patients the world over. Currently, Dr.Stein's facial plastic surgery practice is the only one in the state of North Carolina to accept Bitcoin.
