Do You Want More Positive Online Reviews?
The influence of online reviews continues to increase as consumers become more enveloped in the digital world. A reported 70% of consumers now consult online reviews before hiring a service, and 82% of consumers consider online reviews as extremely valuable. With that, not only is having online reviews important for your practice, but having positive online reviews is critical.
While knowing you need online reviews is easy to understand, knowing how to get patients to leave reviews is more complex. Many patients forget once they leave the office or are too busy to bother with submitting a review once their appointment is complete.
MyPatientReviews, a free web app, changes the game. It simplifies the process for patients to leave you a review by allowing them to scan a QR code and immediately leave you a review from their mobile device.
How It Works
You can create your free MyPatientReviews account at http://mypatientreviews.com by inputting your email address and choosing a password. Next, fill out the information for the public profile that patients will see. Be sure to include your physical address and website URL for increased optimization.
Next, you will be prompted to verify your email address to complete profile setup.
Configure Your Profile
After verifying your email address, you will be prompted to log in. Complete your profile by clicking “Get Started” and following the prompts.
Prompt 1: Edit your info
The information you provided when creating your profile will automatically populate. Should you want to change anything or if you noticed an error, you can edit it during this step.
Prompt 2: Add your links
Insert the web address for each of your online reviews profiles*, including Google Places, Yahoo! Local, Bing Local, Yelp, and Citysearch. Feel free to add additional review listings such as DemandForce or Angie’s List in the empty spaces provided.
*Note: only profiles added will be displayed.
Prompt 3: Pick your custom URL
Choose a URL that will give patients access to your MyPratientReviews page. We recommend choosing the same URL as your website’s address. This will make it easy for patients to remember and will remain branded to your practice.

You can now preview your MyPatientReviews site and test each of the links to your review pages. If the site preview is to your liking, print your 8×10 QR code display and start collecting patient reviews!
