40% of people abandon a website that takes more than 3 seconds to load.
The top practices are getting over 50% of their new patients off the internet. It all starts with their website being built correctly and optimized properly. It loads very quickly on phone, ipad and tablets.
Why is this important?
Studies show that if you’re site doesn’t load in less than 4 seconds, many will leave. And for every second longer, another 7% will leave.
Studies also show that over 40% of all prospective patients are using their phone or tablet to view your site.
Here’s a random site I recently tested. See the results below:
It took over 13 seconds to merely start displaying. Over 19 seconds to complete! 19 seconds! No one is going to wait around for that.
“But my site loads quickly when I check it?”
Just because your site loads quickly for you doesn’t mean it’s loading quickly for first time viewers. It’s called “caching”. You are viewing a cached version of it. New viewers have to wait!
Over 90% of all websites I test (of physical or occupational therapists) fail the test.

It angers me that health care offices are getting ripped off!
They are spending thousands of dollars on a website thinking that it’s going to help their business and unbeknownst to them…it’s not! Most healthcare professionals don’t know about this techy sort of stuff so we are easy prey.
I hate it seeing my brothers and sisters getting ripped-off.
That’s why we formed our own design team who know how to do it right at an affordable price.
