Transform how patients experience your brand with a powerful physician finder on your website
Without proper guidance, patients and caregivers struggle to find physicians — or worse, give up seeking treatment altogether. Adding a robust find-a-doctor directory makes a pharmaceutical website more effective and strengthens consumer loyalty to your brand.
The pharmaceutical industry spends billions on advertising every year, but brands make little investment past the awareness phase. This represents a huge missed opportunity: 88% of consumers want pharma brands to connect them to care via a physician finder with accurate and robust provider data as well as doctor ratings and scheduling capabilities.
Modern directories for the modern-day patient
Embed a high-quality and intuitive physician directory right into your brand’s website. Doctor.com’s find-a-doctor technology lets patients identify and connect with physicians who can prescribe medications that treat their specific conditions faster and more seamlessly.
From “talk to your doctor” to “book an appointment”
Online scheduling layers a direct call to action onto the patient experience. Help patients take their next step directly from your website’s physician directory, streamlining the journey and deepening their loyalty to your brand.
