Expanding the patient base of your rheumatology practice

The medical marketing experts at Cardinal can help your rheumatology practice grow. Rheumatologists specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal diseases and systematic autoimmune disorders. The types of medical conditions treated include osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, osteoporosis, tendinitis, lupus, and scleroderma. Many of these diseases can cause painful swelling, stiffness, and deformity of the joints, bones, muscles, and connective tissue. Patients are typically seeking relief from persistent pain that affects their daily activities.

Digital marketing strategy for Rheumatology

Cardinal can develop the right marketing strategy to enable prospective patients to connect with your practice. Many new patients will be referred to a rheumatologist by their primary care physician. Others may have a family history of rheumatic disorders and recognize similar symptoms in themselves. Just as treatment protocols are personalized for each patient, today’s competitive healthcare marketplace requires strategies that are tailored to meet the needs of your practice.

We are proud to announce that our CEO, Alex Membrillo, has released his latest book titled The Anatomy of Medical Marketing.

Offering a step by step approach to increase your patient volume and keep your practice off life support, Membrillo will help you grow your practice with ease.
