PAA Referral Service
The PAA Referral Service is designed to provide the public with access to the names of registered psychologists specializing in their area of need. The referral service receives on average 160 calls each month and over 1100 visits to the referral search webpage per month, making it a great source of low-cost advertising for psychologists.
Referral service members can add a link to their personal website for an additional fee. Adding a link to your professional practice website further increases the likelihood that potential clients will contact you. Users of the PAA Online Referral, on average, click on website links 5 times more than phone numbers.
Biography & Photo
Referral service members can enhance their visibility by uploading a profile photo and short biography to their referral service profile. These extra features are free, and allow prospective clients to learn more about you and your services.
PAA tracks the number of referrals you receive via phone, clicks on your website link, and clicks on your phone number. Information on how many referrals you have received can be obtained at any time by contacting the PAA office.
