CRH Medical Celebrates Physician Platform Milestone

VANCOUVER, BC, October 14, 2010 – CRH Medical Corporation (CRM:TSX-V,
CRMMF: OTCQX) announced today that it recently celebrated its 200,000th unique
visitor to its online physician marketing platform. The Company began tracking
unique visitors when it began the online promotion and referral of patients to its
physician network in August 2009.

The Company’s proprietary online physician network platform utilizes search engine
marketing and optimization strategies to direct patients to its crhsystem.com
website. The website provides educational materials for people seeking hemorrhoid
information thus enabling them to contact one of the hundreds of physicians listed
on the Company’s web site. All physicians listed on the CRH website have been
trained by the Company in the proper use of CRH’s proprietary technology and
treatment protocols.

The CRH website is also a source of information for physicians looking to enhance
patient care and increase practice revenue. The Company continues to add
physicians to its platform and will look for opportunities to maximize the value of this
asset in the future.

“Our website and online marketing program provide a valuable platform for CRH
and our partners” stated Edward Wright, CRH Chief Executive Officer. “Recently,
we have been receiving approximately 20,000 visitors to our website each month.
While this growing population of potential customers provides us a means to
enhance patient care, the platform also allows us to increase communication and
educational opportunities within our physician network. We believe this platform
differentiates us from other medical service and product companies in our space
and we will continue to explore ways to leverage this asset.”
