Update Your Online Doctor Profile
Patients are looking for you.
Referring physicians are looking for you.
Make it easier to be found!
Thirty percent of the visitors to our websites (advocatehealth.com, amgdoctors.com, and advocatechildrenshospital) are looking for a physician. To provide an optimal opportunity for both patients and referring physicians to connect with you, we have launched a redesign of online physician profiles and enhanced a paid search campaign to drive more web traffic to your profile.
Be sure to check your profile often to ensure information is current.How Do I Update My Online Profile?
The following elements can be updated by completing the HealthAdvisor Survey or via your profile page, under your photo – “Update your profile.”
- Date of Birth (used to display your age only)
- Years in Practice
- Office Hours
- Practice Website (NOTE: AMG physician website will be amgdoctors.com. We cannot list hospital competitor’s websites or other scheduling websites like Zocdocs.com)
- Top 15 Clinical Interests
o Use words that patients and/or physicians would use to find specific things you do/treat (e.g. diabetes management, asthma, GERD treatment)
o If you would like to remove any clinical interests, please email email@example.com
- Primary Clinical Focus (PCF):If you have a clinical focus in addition to your medical specialty, let us know. Please only submit one PCF.
o PCF will be displayed in italics, and slightly smaller, under the medical specialty
o e.g. – A physician board certified in General Surgery, doing most/all of their work as a breast surgeon may use “Breast Surgery” as a PCF, making it visible to consumer and referring clinicians
- Philosophy of care statement: A philosophy of care statement expresses your values, beliefs and reflects what is important to you in the physician/patient relationship. This will help to make a more personal connection with your patient.
o Look for examples on your fellow physician profiles.
NOTE: Please know that you do not need to fill out every field once you are in. You can skip to any section you want and add/edit it appropriately.

Physicians with a profile video are six times more likely to attract patients than those with no video. We are regularly scheduling videos at New Physician Orientations and at hospital sites.
To schedule your video, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
In your email include the following: Your name, primary hospital location and specialty. We will contact you to coordinate a video sitting.
A photo is an important element of your profile. Some visitors may skip over profiles that do not include a headshot. A referring physician may recognize a face but not know the name.
To schedule your profile photo, email email@example.com.
If a photo was taken and not on your profile, contact HealthAdvisor by emailing them at firstname.lastname@example.org .
