A few months ago, I was approached by a wonderful person, a doctor from God. And he asked to modernize his site, because. The old one was designed already in 2013, was created “on the knee,” and already ceased to meet modern requirements.

The medical website design is not only medical articles but also a CRM system, an appointment booking system, and a mandatory version for the visually impaired by GOST requirements.

I successfully implemented all this (except for the appointment booking system taken from the previous site).
- Mini-CRM system automatically uploads the contact details of patients who have booked an appointment, facilitating feedback. I will soon implement the ability to upload data to Excel for analysis.
- The version for the visually impaired makes the site work better for people with vision problems.
- The system of questions and answers allows visitors to ask them directly from the form on the article of interest, and the doctor promptly answers them, having the ability to quickly moderate.
What difficulties did you face?
When creating a personal website for a doctor, I had to face some problems.
The first is that the old site was already trusted with a well-established link mass. But it was done quite poorly, as a result of which it was necessary to carefully transfer links to the new site simultaneously with the content of the articles.
The second is the transfer of comments from a self-written site to WordPress. It was tedious, but the result was worth the effort. I outlined the best practices for moving comments in WordPress here.
The third is integrating the appointment booking system from a self-written site into WordPress. Unfortunately, the programmer left a lot of garbage in the code, so I had to sweat. But the system works successfully and pleases visitors.
