We found that doctors with profile photos are viewed TWICE as often as doctors without photos. A professional headshot adds credibility and recognition. Here are some tips on which photo to add to your profile.
- Format: Use a professional headshot. If you don’t have one, consider investing in getting some headshots done.
- Subject: Make it a photo of yourself recently or within 2 years. While hobbies are an interesting part of everyone's life, try to keep you as the main subject matter, not the bass you caught last year.
- Style: Some physicians wear a white coat or stethoscope for their photos to help current and prospective patients identify them.
- Background: Try to have a monochromatic background that keeps the focus on you.
