Medindia Home Page for Doctors is a free service we provide to doctors and healthcare professionals to create a full-featured online presence and profile that they can fully control and maintain. If you are a doctor it allows you to list your practice details, locations, specialities and showcase your credentials, experience, expertise and skills to the world and to your patients. An online presence and profile is essential so visitors and patients can find you when they search for you. For example, you may have done work in certain area of medicine that may be useful for a patient's to understand, so that they can seek advice and guidance from you.
When you create a home page, we also include your name and practice details in our searchable doctors' directory, which contains over 260,000 records, categorized by state, city, pin code and specialty and is visited by millions of visitors each month. This listing is linked to your home page and enhances your online visibility in search engines. It can also provide you with a source of new patient leads and referrals, and allow visitors to book an appointment with you directly.
The selection of information that you can publish, has been done consistent with the ethical requirements of medical bodies such as Medical Council of India (MCI) and the recently published and notified guidelines for 'Practice of Telemedicine' in India. The homepage stores all your essential information and takes care of the needs of your patients in your practice. It has both areas that are visible to the world out there and the non-visible area just for you.
