POSTED BY: Megan Walker

Dr Kellee Slater 010918 downloadOver the past six months I have been hearing great things about Dr Kellee Slater (Hepato-biliary, pancreatic and liver transplant surgeon) - that her patient care, clinical skills and marketing approach are excellent.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Dr Slater recently and you can hear first-hand her approach to marketing. Dr Slater promotes her services with the patient firstly and firmly in mind … and it has led to amazing outcomes for her practice.

Dr Slater is a super busy lady and still makes time for marketing. In this interview she gives you plenty of low-cost / free marketing tips and the interview is well worth the watch and relevant for all health professionals, practice managers and practice owners.
