Why does a doctor need a website?

Posted on 06th May 2017 by Aniruddhya Hazra

A study reveals that in India the density of all doctors- allopathic, ayurvedic, homoeopathic and unani at the national level was 80 doctors per Lakh population compared to 130 in China. Many patients are forced to consult a quackery doctor, since only 18.8% of rural allopathic doctors have medical qualification.

Ignoring those who don’t have a medical qualification, the number for India fell to 36 doctors per lakh population.. This simply means each qualified doctor is to attend 2,778 patients. It is next to impossible. But a new trend shows that people tend to go online searching for a doctor before making an appointment. The importance of a doctor website is thus getting popular day by day. A medical practice website is a powerful tool–it allows doctors to attract new patients, educate patients, and increase office efficiency. webq.co.in provides a Full-Service Plan to help doctors realize the full benefits of their websites.
