We invite members of the press to share your content and engage with physicians for free with a SERMO Page, and work with us to directly poll the SERMO global social network.

Interviewing physicians can be challenging. Their busy schedules make it difficult to pry them away from patients and give the media the scoop on real world medicine. Creating effective polls in real time can be a great way to discover physician sentiment, but is nearly impossible to accomplish.

SERMO can help in two ways:

  1. Poll our community. We can do flash polling with results in as little as 48 hours and we can do week-long polls that give you a broad cross-section of opinion and a bigger sample size. In addition to providing data, our polls also spark lively discussions that can give you unfiltered quotes for your news story. We provide this free of charge for members of the media.
  2. Interview our doctors. We have doctors in over 90 specialties who are articulate and available to speak with the media. If you would like to talk to a physician, contact us and let us help you find the perfect expert.

Our polling has been influential for years. We’ve provided physician insight on a range of topics, from Ebola, to walk-in clinics and vaccinations to physician pay and more. We are the voice of real world physicians and we can add high impact data to your next article. Contact us for more information.
