MILWAUKEE, April 28, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A Milwaukee acupuncture and holistic healing center is providing current and prospective patients with a rich resource of health information. Dr. Arthur Rapkin, O.M.D., L.A.C. of Vitality Health &Wellness Center of Wisconsin states that the clinic's site goes significantly beyond the basic tasks of introducing the practitioners to the public and facilitating appointments. "We want this site to serve as an educational resource, a portal for all kinds of information on various health challenges and conditions, medical news and helpful guidance," he says.
Informative blog posts play a major role in this approach. The website's blog offers articles on topics ranging from weight loss techniques to natural infertility treatments. Dr. Rapkin states that the blog will continue to grow, creating an ever-expanding resource of interesting, accessible data on all aspects of health. "It's immensely helpful if you have a trusted 'go-to' site that explains these things in plain English instead of forcing you to wade through medical studies written for doctors," explains the Milwaukee acupuncturist.
The website also makes extensive of use of multimedia, including video clips intended to explain, educate and inspire. An introduction to the clinic appears on the home page, while the success stories page allows visitors to see and hear real-life accounts of patients' triumphs over different health issues. "Seeing is believing," says Dr. Rapkin. "When you can receive a firsthand account from someone who has had success with a particular clinic and technique, that's powerful evidence that you've come to the right place for your own health issue," he says.
In addition to this body of educational and testimonial material, the clinic website also offers more standard but equally helpful fare. Visitors can request appointments through an interactive contact form or reach the clinic through other contact information on the site, for instance; they can also register online for an account and purchase special offers through the center's online store which offers wellness packages.
Patients also have the opportunity to download and complete the necessary paperwork in advance, saving them that trouble when they appear for their appointment. Even in the more standard parts of the site, however, the practitioners have made an effort to provide in-depth information. The clinic's deep list of services enables viewers to click on each service for a clear, detailed explanation of that service's features and benefits.
"We want people to be able to understand right away what the service can treat, how they can benefit and what's involved," says Dr. Rapkin. "This makes it easier for them to decide what they need and whether they want to go through with it, or at least schedule a consultation about it."
