Would you like to enjoy greater personal, professional and financial rewards in your practice?
Work with patients with whom you are a good fit.
Help yourself further by gaining clarity about the patient you will not accept into your practice.
Here are some red flags that alert you to patients to avoid.
Your response to this patient also offers valuable information. Beware of patients with these qualities:
Listen to your intuition. If you sense something is not right, pay attention. You assume risk with each new patient you accept.
When you meet with a new patient, say, “I want you to work with the doctor who’s right for you. Let’s see if we're a good fit.“
If you decide to say no to a patient, communicate clearly with client-centered language free of judgment. “Thank you for meeting with me. I genuinely want the best for you, and my gut tells me you would be a better fit with a different doctor. You can go to this web site to find the names of other doctors to interview.”
Saying no to the wrong patient helps you say yes to the right one.
