Managing Telephone Interruptions

Everyday interruptions at your medical practice can be a barrier to effective time management and can eventually become an obstacle to your success. Put your phone to work for you-Not against you. You control telephone interruptions, they don’t control you.
Tips for Success

Tip #1 Designate a specific time of day to accept calls and another time of day to reply to messages. Forward calls outside of these time periods to voice mail.

Tip #2 Record a custom greeting on your voicemail that identifies individuals who may be of further assistance to the caller and give specific instructions for leaving a message.
