Although determining how aggressively to collect patient fees can be a difficult decision for DCs in any economic environment, this is especially true in the wake of the coronavirus crisis. Consider the following scenario:
QUESTION: I dismissed a patient who used a racial slur and intimidated one of my staff members. Suffice to say, his behavior was disrespectful and disruptive to the practice. Now he wants to return to care, saying he's changed. What should I do?
Malpractice cases take a heavy toll on doctors. This is something attorney Thomas Jensen has seen firsthand when defending chiropractors and medical doctors in dozens of malpractice cases.
Building a friendly, warm relationship with your patients is well worth the time.
Investing in employees, and looking at ways to increase benefits without impacting cash flow, can have significant positive impact on success.
QUESTION: I was recently treating a patient who rolled his eyes as he agreed to proceed with my recommended chiropractic treatment plan. Normally I can tell what a patient wants to do, but I wondered if I should have addressed his nonverbal message specifically.
When one of your difficult patients is scheduled for a visit, it may make you feel anxious, or even resentful. This, in turn, may affect your compassion and empathy toward them. If your last encounter was challenging, you may put up an invisible wall that starts the new visit off on a wrong foot.
Choosing a location is about more than just the price or the size of the space. Take a look around and consider what patients and prospects will see before they even enter your practice.
When Doctors of Chiropractic think of patient safety, they often think about maintaining safe office layouts or treatment plans. But it can also mean knowing what to do when a patient has a potential adverse reaction to care or is experiencing an emergency.
Question: Lately, it seems like more of my patients have simply missed appointments without canceling in advance. In the past, I've considered this a cost of doing business. But it's really beginning to affect my bottom line. So, I'm wondering: Should I begin charging patients who don't show up for appointments?
