6 Patient Testimonials Examples for Practitioners

updated on 28 May 2023

Patient testimonials are positive experiences shared by patients who consulted with a medical professional/ healthcare organization

They can help to show that your practice is providing quality care & that patients are satisfied with the services they have received.

Why would you need Patient Testimonials?

When patients see positive experiences of people who consulted your service before, they'll be more confident & courageous to approach your service without hesitation

In that sense, it's increasingly important that the testimonials come from real people & you never fake testimonials as it's a matter of a person's well being.

A few things to keep in mind before posting patient testimonials on your website:

  • HIPAA regulations:

    The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is a federal law that protects the privacy and security of patient health information. Under HIPAA, you must obtain consent from a patient before posting their testimonial on your website

  • Confidentiality:

    Even if you have obtained written consent from a patient, you must still take steps to protect the confidentiality of the patient. This means not posting any information that could harm the patient, such as their specific location, email & health records

  • Being Authentic:

    Patients are more likely to trust testimonials that are authentic and believable. When asking patients for testimonials, be sure to give them specific instructions on what you are looking for.

    You may also want to consider using a video testimonial, as this can help to build trust with potential patients. You can use Famewall to collect text, video testimonials using a link like page.famewall.io/famewall
