Medical practice’s phones are always ringing – from answering patient calls, to scheduling appointments, requests for phone nurse consultations to prescriptions refills. Medical answering services are a huge asset to a busy doctor or dentist’s office. Medical answering services can help take care of appointment reminders, appointment scheduling, daytime call management, confidential messaging, patient outreach and automated solutions to make the call-in process much more user-friendly and efficient. When an office staff is constantly on the phone at a medical practice, it can really slow down the daily operations, such as timely check-ins and pulling patient charts. By using medical answering services, patients have a reliable way to stay in touch with their doctor, receive after hour attention and stay on top of upcoming appointments.
