Poor patient service at your front desk is the main reason patients leave your practice.

Believe it or not, 96% of patients in a 35,000-patient study revealed that their primary frustration about their physician practice was related to poor patient service.

Your front desk staff are the face and personality of your practice. Without the proper skills, it’s only a matter of time before a patient service disaster drives your patients out the door to find another practice that will treat them better. It could be happening right now.

It’s so much harder and more expensive to bring in new patients than to keep your existing ones. So, when an active patient leaves your practice, it’s like throwing your money into the garbage.
