    Your reception staff are the first people your patients speak to and the first people they see when they walk in your door.

But there is something you can do about it… 

    Medical practice expert and consultant, Mara L. Shorr, BS, CAC II-X, will provide you with the specific tactics necessary to help you avoid losing patients due to front desk problems.
