MedShark is excited to hear about the launch of new verticals within Local Service Ads. These pay-per-lead ads have been available for other verticals, such as home services and lawyers, and are now available for dentists, dermatologists, and other health services. These ads, which display at the top of Google search results, are designed to help users find local services and service providers. They are a great way to get in front of people actively looking for your assistance.

Differences from LSAs for Businesses

Unlike LSAs for business verticals, call recordings and messages are unavailable for healthcare verticals. This means you will be unable to dispute leads.

Here are some of the new healthcare categories within LSA:

  • Allergist
  • Chiropractor
  • Dentist
  • Dermatologist
  • Dietician
  • Ophthalmologist
  • Optometrist
  • Orthodontist
  • Physical Therapist
  • Podiatrist
  • Primary Care Physician

The license requirements and background checks for these verticals also differ from the business and home services categories. Most will require a provider and practice license, general and professional liability insurance, background checks on all fieldworkers, and a National Provider Identifier verification.
