Industry Insights

We're big about getting to the bottom of a story — reaching the heart of each narrative.

It began as a curiosity about our own profession as Physical Therapists. It then expanded to all of Allied Rehab Therapy, then of course — healthcare at large. Finally, we realized that thanks to the support of the tens of thousands of subscribers within the UpDoc community, we were able to unite voices, glean perspectives, report on industry happenings, and hopefully — bridge the gap, one piece at a time.

Digital Marketing
Growth Solutions

What began as our image eventually became our service identity.

UpDoc Media grew into UpDoc, Inc. — servicing companies, individual providers, and organizations from all sizes and backgrounds; from solo clinician providers to multi-state corporations; from educational companies, to healthcare companies, to technology startups, to law offices, to construction companies, and many more.

We believe good marketing is good marketing — it is a matter of delivering the right message, to the right audience, at the right time, for the right action. Doing this at the highest levels requires a data driven philosophy with an ecosystem approach. And, to do this right by each brand we work with, we take pride in the fact that no "cookie cutters" are used nor "copy and paste templates" are given.

Ours is a precisely customized, boutique approach — an in-culture understand delivered by an out-sourced agency growth solution.
