Websites for Medical Practices
Why does your medical practice need a website?
A medical website for your practice is more important than ever. People of all ages rely on the internet to research their own symptoms, diagnose their illnesses and/or search for a doctor based on any information and reviews they can find.
Many insurance companies provide a listing of participating doctors and leave it to the patient to do their own research. If your practice does not have a website, you are missing an opportunity that a custom medical website can provide.
