If you take a look around your waiting room, you’ll probably see that most people are on their mobile devices. So it probably doesn’t surprise you that mobile internet searches are more significant to businesses than ever. And with Google’s recent announcement that slow loading mobile websites will be penalized in the search results, it’s imperative that you make sure your mobile website is up to par.

Many medical health professionals are so busy that they might not know if they have a slow loading mobile website, some don’t even know if they have a mobile website. Unfortunately, many of these doctors will see a decrease in their search rankings, which could lead to a decrease in business.
