These days, more people are on social media platforms than are not. In fact, according to the Pew Research Center, the amount of adults on Facebook increased from 67 percent to 71 percent from 2012 to 2013, and undoubtedly has continued to rise in the last year.
Why Social Media?
So why should a podiatry practice care that adults are active on Facebook and Twitter? The team at Idaho Foot & Ankle Associates recognizes that their patients love a way to connect with their doctors on a different, more personal level. This understanding of patients’ lives outside of the office sets them apart from other foot doctors in the Treasure Valley area.
Patients can easily access Idaho Foot & Ankle Associates’ social media channels by visiting:
- Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/idahofootankle
- Twitter – https://twitter.com/Idahofootankle
Real Time Updates
The team wants patients to be able to receive real-time updates on the goings-on of their podiatry office, as well as to be privy to the constant advances that are being made in the industry. From emergency closures to research on heel pain, the office posts information that is pertinent to their patients’ health and wellness.
Doctors Stanley B. Leis, Rebecca A. Smiley-Leis, Stewart O. Jones, Kerry W. Anderson and Randall L. Benedict are eager to share the knowledge and wisdom they have gathered throughout their collective years of practice. They know that sometimes certain questions don’t come up during an office visit and that sending out a quick tweet or posting a brief message on Facebook can help to ease a patient’s mind and feet.
