Local Search Optimization
Google+ Local optimization is one of the most important places a practice should focus on. Google owns 67% of all search and when patients are searching for a practice Google+ Local pages are what show up on top. You could have the #1 organic listing and that puts you in the 8th spot, below the Google+ Local listings.
