Physician Reputation Management through Doximity

By Farris Timimi MD, Medical Director, Mayo Clinic Social Media Network

If you're a physician and even if you have no interest in engaging on Doximity, taking 30 minutes to claim and complete your profile is a great investment. It's a high-impact, low-effort way to help influence your online reputation.

Doximity is an online social network with membership limited to physicians. Claiming yours ensures its accuracy, especially relative to your clinical practice specialities and interests, something that is not guaranteed in public profiles created from public records.

Doximity also produces a public directory of physicians that's the source for the U.S. News & World Report Doctor Finder, so a completed Doximity profile is typically among the top search engine results for a physician's name.

These slides take you through the process in 12 easy steps. Even better, if you email or upload your CV to Doximity, you can skip steps 4-11!

For more background on Doximity, check out these tips from Bryan Vartabedian, M.D., who has served on our Mayo Clinic Center for Social Media External Advisory Board and is now a Mayo Clinic SMHN Platinum Fellow.

Hi Dr. Timimi,

May I quote your presentation in a webinar I’m giving on physician reputation management? Not being a physician I can’t get into Doximity for screenshots.

Cheers,

Janet

I love this! I just researched this a while ago and wanted to share with physicians. May I pass on to our physician relations team to share with our medical staff? Our cardiologists brought this up and I would love to share this post with them!
