How critical are positive Google reviews for your practice? The answer is simple. More than 75% of new patients select healthcare professionals based on online reviews, and the most widely viewed review platform is Google!
In today's day and age, before making an appointment with a new healthcare provider, prospective patients typically check a doctor's online reviews. Even when someone gets a recommendation from a friend or family member, it's common to validate that endorsement by checking out the doctor's online reputation. Although it's not unusual for an occasional patient to air a grievance online, having a consistent and positive stream of Google reviews that reflect well on your practice offers a sure way to impress online visitors.
Conveniently located in your Google My Business Listing, your Google reviews and star ratings are front and center for online visitors and prospective patients to see as they start their search for services and care. Furthermore, as the review process has evolved, more and more people are looking to read and leave reviews on Google, where they spend much of their Internet time.
Best of all, generating positive reviews on Google offers a cost-effective way to market your practice. As a matter of fact, it's free. All you need to do is incorporate gathering reviews into your practice's overall marketing strategy and make it easy and convenient for satisfied patients to leave them.
