New York, NY (PRWEB) October 5, 2010
AskTheDoctor.com, a revolutionary company in the health 2.0 industry, today announced its commitment to increasing the number of questions they answer from visitors to their website by hiring more physicians. This is a significant step in the ongoing effort to establish the company as leader in the online health information industry.
“When we started AskTheDoctor.com, our goal was to help as many people in the world as possible who don't have access to qualified physicians,” said Prakash Chand, Co-Founder and CEO of AskTheDoctor.com. “We have developed a long term plan to be able to sustain answering at least 1000 questions per day.”
AskTheDoctor.com currently staffs a team of 8 dedicated physicians who are able to provide 60-80 high quality informative answers everyday to visitors of their website. These physicians range in specialty from general practitioners to various specialists.
“Up to now we have only been able to answer roughly 80 questions daily out of the average 45,000 questions we receive from our visitors every month,” says Dr. Suneel Sharman, Co-Founder and COO of AskTheDoctor.com “With the amount of advertising revenue we have created, we are able to help more people by investing all of our revenue back into hiring more physicians. We hope to be answering at least 250-300 questions per day before the end of this year and roughly about 1000 questions per day by sometime in the new year.”
