Medical Office First Impressions: Make Them Count

Medical Office Cleaning Checklist | CarbonFoot MedicalThere’s that wise old saying to never judge a book by its cover. But when it comes to doctor’s offices, first impressions count. There are no do-overs or second chances. You’re never going to get that first reaction back, and if it’s negative- it could lead to a lost patient or lost future referrals from that patient. So make sure your office is serving you well.  Marketing can get the patients to your practice door, but YOU have to make sure they keep coming back. Do this by impressing them before they even meet you! Use this medical office checklist to prevent a major mistake that many doctors make- forgetting about the cleanliness of their office space.
