Need new patients? Look to your existing patients.

You want new patients, right? So do I. New patient business means everything--growth, success, stability, the future. But don't ignore your existing patients for they are your best source of new patient business. All you need to do is to figure out how to harness the power of your existing patients to generate new patient business. Here are some things you can do and some things you must do.

  • Keep your existing patients happy (A Must!)

  • Mail fliers periodically with new procedures you wish to promote

  • Send them business cards or magnets periodically

  • Publish a news letter quarterly

  • Ask them to "tell-a-friend"

  • Direct patients to your blog and tell them to refer others to it.
