When someone Googles your professional name or name of your business, what shows up online?

Taking advantage of and setting up online listings, especially if they are free, is one way to help boost your online reputation.

Having your listings set-up online has many benefits. All three of these websites below are places where patients may already be leaving a review for your business. Claiming your account allows you to manage and respond to those reviews, among other benefits.

For positive reviews, it allows you to further reinforce the relationship and show your patients that you care and appreciate that they trust you with their care.

If by chance a negative review is posted, it allows you to respond and invite them to continue the conversation with you offline to set things right.

Begin Managing Your Online Reputation Today

To begin managing your online reputation, here are three websites that you will want to go to to claim your listing as soon as you can.


Whenever a patient Googles the name of their healthcare provider, or their potential healthcare provider, one of the places that your name is likely to show up is on Healthgrades. Healthgrades touts themselves as “the leading online resource for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals.” Claiming your account here allows you to post a photo, manage reviews, and provide accurate, up-to-date information to your patients and potential patients about your practice.

Google My Business

No one can ignore Google in this day and age. Many online reviewers start here when they are leaving a review of their experience with a business. Claiming your Google My Business account allows you to respond to reviews, post photos or your business, and also create updates that will show up online when someone searches for you as well.


Yelp is also one of the more popular review sites online. Yelp allows you to respond to your reviews, connect with customers, upload photos, and post your business hours.

For help with either setting up or managing your online listings, contact Connections Healthcare Strategies.
