SUMMARY OF FUNCTIONS

Receptionist, under the supervision of the Chief of Staff, is responsible for performing

secretarial functions in an assigned office, including greeting patients, answering phones and scheduling appointments.

Customer Service:

  • Patients want to feel special. Giving your patients a little more personal attention can go a long way in making them feel special. Also, physicians should also remember to always "be present" with the patient. Patients want to feel as though they are the most important person in the world while you are with them.
  • Patients want to know you genuinely care about them. Make sure you give them a warm welcome when they enter the office. No matter how busy your medical office staff is, someone should greet them as soon as they enter your office. Even if you can't verbally greet the patient, getting eye contact with them lets them know you are aware of their presence and will get to them as soon as possible.
  • Patients want you to tackle any issues that arise immediately. If a problem arises with your patient, rectify the situation as soon as possible. A patient will remember that you went out of your way to make them happy but if you don't handle it right away they will remember that too. Customer service is not about getting it perfect, it’s about catering to the desires of the patient.
