Online Medical is a web design and development company run by doctors for doctors and allied health professionals. It was started in 2010 by Dr Andrew Renaut who at the time was frustrated at the lack of expertise in local web development companies when it came to having a website for his own specialist practice. The company has now developed over a hundred websites for fellow specialists, GPs, dentists and allied health professionals. Online Medical staff are fully cognisant of the specific needs of the medical industry.
We are able to service clients nationally – with clients in major metropolitan areas across Australia. Our head office is in Brisbane, with virtual offices in Sydney and Melbourne.
We employ talent across a number of specialist disciplines, including web designers with UX/UI specialisation, photographers, copywriters, SEO / SEM specialists.
