In today’s ultra-competitive digital age, having that edge over the competition is vital. No sector is exempt from this ethos. Even the medical practices – which, arguably, could be considered to have taken a mite slower to join the digital party – face concerted online competition from other practices across Dubai hoping to appeal to patients.
