This has happened to all of us! We call a patient to confirm their appointment but they don't answer. You call them again... and still no answer. Do you just consider them as a cancellation, a no-show, do you double book that time slot just in case, are you just going to hope they show up and leave them on the schedule?!
Sandy Pardue gives us the exact steps and instructions we must take to handle patients who do NOT confirm.
She gives us specific scripts, how many attempts we should make on a confirmation, what needs to be said, and where to discern and make moves in this situation.
