If you want to capture the imagination of an Instagram audience it has to be visual.

While doctors may find this hard to start with, as the medical niche does not always inspire lots of visual content like wedding cakes or sports cars, but it can be.

So your Instagram page starts with Photos, Images, Infographics or GIFs and a bit of imagination and creativity. Instagram for Doctors should not be ignored.

Examples of Instagram for Doctors

Think about your patients and what they respond to when you talk with them. Sometimes just starting with a simple approach is a good start. Try with posts like

  • Related or inspiring quotes.

  • Answer common questions - one post at a time.


As time goes by your Instagram you become more focused on keywords and improved visuals along the lines of the following:

  • Q&A’s with more visual content or explainer videos,

  • Storytelling  or case studies (before, during, after),

  • Showing what happens behind the scenes, invite patients “backstage” can demystify

  • News and developments with pictures, and

  • Events and presentations optimised for Instagram


All in all, the visual nature of Instagram gives you an unprecedented chance to build a buzz around your practice and get patients interested if not excited in what, why and how you can help them.
