If I were to ask physicians to list things they think about the most, I'm confident marketing their practice would not make the list. Many find the idea of advertising their practice distasteful, thinking that medical professionals shouldn't stoop to the type of promotion typically used by retail businesses. For others, it's simply not important enough in comparison with meeting governmental mandates, dealing with insurances, and above all patient care.

However, times are changing and so should medical practices if they are to generate enough business to stay afloat.

As evident, there is a huge opportunity to attract new patients online and build a relationship with existing ones - provided it's done right.
