Putting Your Business on the (Google) Map
Google Places for Business is one of the most effective ways to reach local patients. Learn how to make it work for your practice.
According to Google, 97% of consumers search for local businesses online. Adding your practice to Google Places will make sure your name pops up when new patients are looking for you.
