Our Receptionist Training Program is completely customized to your practice. We listen to your calls using call tracking or we conduct mystery calls.

We train each receptionist individually on the all the important factors needed to successfully schedule new patients. Our program includes a flip chart with scripts for the main scenarios your receptionists run into and a CD with sample bad and good calls.

We offer one- and two-day on-site training programs plus two months of follow-up phone training. Phone coaching packages are also available for receptionists that are already adept and only need a refinement of their skills.
