FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Aug. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- An internationally recognized expert in the field of urology and reproductive health, new CMO Dr. Lawrence Hakim will provide invaluable guidance as EZDoctor (https://ezdoctor.com/) undergoes expansion.

"As a physician, author and educator, I am excited to work with the team at EZDoctor on their quest to ensure the highest levels of integrity in healthcare," said Dr. Hakim. "Consumers deserve to have more information at their disposal when making decisions about their healthcare needs, whether it's choosing a general practitioner for a routine checkup or something far more serious. EZDoctor is taking the lead in providing that information."
Dr. Hakim brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to his role, which will include ensuring the accuracy of EZDoctor's medical data.

"Dr. Hakim is a world-renowned surgeon, but more importantly, he shares our goal of improving efficiency, transparency and effectiveness in healthcare," said David Marsidi, CEO of EZDoctor. "Consumers today often feel powerless and voiceless in the healthcare marketplace. We want to change that perception. We're creating a central destination for medical cost information and physician-specific data to equip patients with the information to make the best decisions for their health."
The wider medical community has recognized the significant contributions of Dr. Hakim to the understanding of urological health. His specialties include male and female sexual dysfunction, erectile dysfunction, male infertility and hormone replacement therapy.
