Physician Marketing Using Groupon

For those not in the know, Groupon is a website that offers coupons and other savings on local merchandise and services. Groupon also has recently rejected a takeover bid by Google.

I recently encountered this amazing deal on Groupon offered by an ENT colleague, Dr. Ghaheri:

"$149 for Four Laser Hair-Removal Treatments at The Center for Aesthetic Medicine at The Oregon Clinic (Up to $1,000 Value)"

I wonder if such marketing and medical discount offerings like this will become the future. Clearly, procedures and other types of medical treatments that are not covered by insurance will be applicable.

For example... here are some medical treatments/services I am considering to discount on Groupon:

1) Injection snoreplasty for snoring
2) Botox injections for facial wrinkles
3) Hearing services and products including hearing aids
