Dana Corriel, MD

Internist, Digital Strategist & Designer

Latest Featured Work


I’m a board-certified internist who decided to shift gears mid-career and became a digital healthcare expert and entrepreneur. I founded SoMeDocs – the site you’re on this very moment – to empower doctors, and promote their autonomy, by helping them to build accounts online that help establish their authority as the experts in health. I now work as a freelance consultant to both  professionals and companies, and build unique digital content for businesses and brands that want to stand out.
