From Sam Schikowitz, ND
Founder of Holistic Practice Management
Holistic Practice Management was built by an ND for NDs. It has grown steadily over 7 years for the following reasons:
(1.) Unlike conventional call centers, only 2 people answer your calls. One in the morning and one in the afternoon! Your patients will get to know your receptionists, and may expect to see them in the office.
(2.) Unlike conventional call centers, we make sure that our teams have no more call volume than they can handle. This means quality service.
(3.) Our receptionists understand and respect naturopathic medicine.
(4.) A reception service is only as good as its receptionists. We spend a lot of time searching for and training our teammates. You will not be disappointed with the incredible team we have working for you.
(5.) Unlike other services, we charge by the minute. This means that if you have a slow month, your rate will also be lower. On top of that, our rates are EXTREMELY competitive, especially since our service is more personalized.
(6.) We have more advanced technology. For example, when we call patients on your behalf, your office number shows on the caller ID. We can also set you up with a phone to call from your office number. If you have an iPhone with iOS8, the phone can be your cell.
(7.) We offer amazing and inexpensive WordPress websites with advanced marketing features.
(8.) We offer Newsletter Services.
(9.) We can take on your phone number and get rid of your existing phone bill. Aside from the port fee, there will be no additional charge for the number.
If you are not 100% satisfied with your service, you can cancel anytime in the first month and not be charged one penny.
