Multi-specialty group practice of part time physicians
919 Medical Dr.
Allen, TX 75013-5021
Our clinic has physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners who specialize in Pediatric or adult medicine (Family Medicine & Internal Medicine). And we've just added a behavioral counselor.
The issue with adding a new listing for each provider (as recommended) is that many of the providers work part time and see each other's patients, therefore, dont really have their own practice and patients in the traditional sense. Rather, it makes more sense to create an additional listing for each specialty (Google's customer rep agreed).
The phone number and address is the same however, so how do I keep them from getting flagged as duplicates? And how should I name them?
Ex: Raintree Healthcare: Pediatrics or Raintree Healthcare Pediatrics
Re: Multi-specialty group practice of part time physicians
When you say "Google's customer rep agreed" was that a support rep that you reached via
https://support.google.com/business/contactflow or an AdWords consultant? The reason I ask is that the advice they've given you is incorrect and I want to make sure that is brought to the attention of the proper area.
It's not so much that Google thinks each practitioner will be seeing a discrete group of patients, but that they recognise that people search for a particular practitioner by name, which is why they ask you to create one listing for the business and then one listing per practitioner.
If you create multiple listings for each speciality you will get flagged as duplicates - there's no way to avoid that since it s an algorithm and not a manual action.
If you're interested in the best practices of adding practitioners then I recommend this article by a fellow top contributor Joy Hawkins: http://www.whitespark.ca/blog/post/85-best-practices-for-practitioner-listings-on-google-my-business...

I appreciate your help. It wasn't an Ad rep; I had requested a call back
from Google. It's no problem though.
Thanks for the info!
