Well, we may have the perfect product for you. So, we will be talking about "Medilink", a year-old theme but quite popular on the Envato platform. We will see together if this theme is what you need in this tumultuous period.

Mobile Compatibility

Thanks to the internet, the world has become a global village; and with the advent of smartphones and tablets, this got even more accentuated. It is easier to operate with a mobile device that can be used anywhere than to rely on a desktop computer.

The developers of Medilink have understood this. Here we have a responsive and mobile-friendly theme. This will allow your patients to have the freedom to make appointments using their smartphones. We tested on various devices and whatever the size of the screen, the result is always good.

In addition, we used one of our favorite tools, namely Mobile-Friendly Test, which allowed us to confirm this test.

Design Review

Medilink developers have done a good job on the design of this theme. Already at the time of loading before the opening of the page, we have a nice animation in the form of DNA which materializes the loading of the page. It's original and it puts us directly in the bath.

Then, the arrangement of colors fits perfectly with the medical field (blue and white). We also have the organization of content, images, photos, and everything, which gives a rendering that is both beautiful and professional; a friendly atmosphere to make your users comfortable. In short, we find the design of this theme very successful.

Speed Test Review

In order to be sure to convert new prospects, it is important to pay attention to the loading speed of your site. Generally, it is not very good for a site to take more than 3 seconds to load. Most users find this time boring and will tend to go elsewhere. Basically, it can negatively influence traffic.

We analyzed the Medilink theme on the GTmetrix site and the average time for a full page load is 5.3 seconds. It is quite long when you take into account the standards in this area. One of the causes of this problem is the image size (2.10mb) which is quite large or the number of requests too high (144).

Fortunately, it’s possible for you to improve the pages loading of your site. You simply need to decrease the number of components on a page. To achieve this, you must: combine files, combine multiple scripts into one script, combine multiple CSS files into one style sheet, and use CSS Sprites and image maps.

SEO Review

This point is really very sensitive, because it concerns all the optimizations that are made on the theme to avoid your site being sanctioned online. The SEO score here measures how well the criteria of the bots are respected and supported for the positioning of your site on the search engines. Good SEO parameters therefore ensure good visibility for the maximum number of visitors.

The SEO Site Checkup site has served us as an analysis tool. The result is not too bad: a score of 70/100. The main problems detected concern CSS Minification, JavaScript Minification, Meta Description, Social Media, Keywords Usage. By correcting these problems, you will necessarily improve your SEO score.

In addition, if you want a more in-depth SEO analysis of your site, we recommend the Yoast SEO plugin, an advanced tool in this area.

Customer Support Review

We are also interested in the user support by the developers of Medilink. Regardless of the quality of a product, it is generally the customer management system that determines the level of customer satisfaction. As good as the product is, if I can't get support in case of blocking, it's not interesting.

Fortunately, the team behind the Medilink theme is very successful in this area. The concerns are dealt with promptly and effectively as far as we have seen. Good point for Medilink ;-)

On the other hand, you can be reassured by the maintenance of the theme. The author regularly updates to fix any bugs and add new features.

Supported Plugins

In order to add other options to our panel, The Medilink theme supports many high-quality plugins. We have for example the legendary WooCommerce for monetizing your site, the popular WPLM for effective translations, and many others just as useful as Elementor Page Builder, Mailchimp, Yoast Seo, etc.

Summarize

We can only note in conclusion the power of this far-reaching theme. For the price ($39), it's really a good deal to being able to use such a product. Whether in terms of design, customization options, features, and even customer support; the theme meets all the major criteria. Even if you are going to make some small adjustments in order to correct the small flaws noted, it is not expensive paid given the quality of what this author offers. So try to see!
