As a health care provider or doctor, you become all things to all people – comrade, cleric, therapist, parent. Responding to a ceaseless stream of incoming telephone calls is the last item that you need to add to your list of duties. When calculating the cost of hiring full-time employees, remember to take into consideration their leave, medical care, and all the additional consumables that you must provide for – all of which quickly add up and escalates your expenses. Mercifully, answering services for doctors and home health care practitioners were established for that very reason.

Phone calls will be appropriately screened and answered in a professional, yet courteous manner. When patients share confidential particulars, they are protected by our HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) certified team and processes.
