A website is the modern day business card, but way better! (Yes, you still need a business card, and make sure your website address is on it.) It's one of the first steps you'll take to marketing your practice because when patients look you up on their computer or phone, they'll want to know who you are, where you're located, what you and your office look like, etc. This helps them begin to build a know, like, and trust relationship with you. If they've really looked into who you are and decide to come see you, then they've decided you're the best option for them, and that's a good thing!
Here are a few options:

Cost: $700-3000 depending on who you use + hosting
Time: Very little
We think Wordpress is best, the company we work with(Purple Finch) builds cutting edge, professional websites. They can also host and manage the website for a low monthly fee. This will save you time and headache if you aren’t good with tech stuff. Also, we think having a Wordpress site is best for SEO and staying current with marketing strategies.
The other option is finding someone local, a family member, or friend that wants to help. Make sure you have an established timeline in place when working with someone.
