info_outline Aren't word of mouth and referrals the best source of patients for acupuncturists? 08/27/2019
Aren't word of mouth and referrals the best source of patients for acupuncturists? Word of mouth referrals are the best, right?

You can do things to get more patients in the door - via word of mouth referrals (I'll give you a quick tip for this!), as well as other referral sources. Having multiple steady sources of referrals is the BEST way to go, in my opinion. And having a system in place so this happens automatically is even better.
