Take the Time to Show Your Patients You Care
Almost every ad for a health system, individual physician, or healthcare provider states that they love their patients. Some print up buttons, t shirts and other swag to brainwash the patients into feeling this love. However for most of patient, though, that experience of love lasts less than 10 minutes. The rest of the time, patients are basically left unloved in the waiting room or the exam room.
There are a number of ways that you can make this love be more heartfelt. Some are as simple as training your staff to be friendlier and more engaging. Two minutes of small talk can make a world of a difference to someone nervous about their appointment.
Another really good way to personally tell patients about all of the good works that are being done in your office, health system, partner offices, etc. By speaking to the patients before their appointment, you will put them at ease, give them more confidence in your abilities, and gain their trust.
