Testimonials from some of our program participants:
The first step of the Classic Practice Program is to gather information specific to your practice. We also give you projects that will immediately start the process of becoming a more organized office.
We have compiled a questionnaire for doctor and staff members that will help us gather pertinent information about the office. This is the first step in our analysis. The questionnaire will help our team develop a customized program for your office. Each person in the office will be asked to complete our confidential questionnaire.
Recall & Reactivation Project
A program designed to reactivate patients that have been putting off visits to the practice and increase patient flow. This is an invaluable project that will increase patient flow.
