Phone Etiquette for Your Practice That's First Rate
How your patients are treated over the phone has EVERYTHING to do with your patient retention and your bottom line.
Poorly treated patients are more apt to leave your practice and to post negative comments online. In 2016, 87% of patients reviewed online comments when making a decision which doctor to see. Considering that a 3% loss in patients can equate to over $150,000 in lost revenue, making sure your patients are treated correctly over the phone is more important than ever.
The only way to be absolutely sure how your patients are treated over the phone is for you to have an active telephone etiquette program in place. The good news is that they’re relatively easy to implement, if you know how. That’s where customer service expert and consultant, Mara Shorr, BS, CAC II-X, can help.
