Telehealth: What’s The Biggest Objection?

Rate this post

Whenever you are trying to “sell” something, people are going to have objections.

Most of the time these objections manifest as excuses.

Trying to get your past patients to buy into Telehealth may come with its challenges, but as long as you know what you’re dealing with ahead of time, you can create a game plan.

So what is the biggest objection when it comes to getting people to try Telehealth?

Expert Juan Michelle Martin weighed in…

“Money, like everybody else. You know I have people coming to be because they’re in pain and I’m like, well, you know, do you want to hurt or do you not want to hurt? And initially, for me, that was a problem. And I think I’ve just gotten to the point where I know they’re in pain. We’ve talked about all these things, I’ve asked them their problems. And make sure that you’re asking them questions, because then when they give you the rebuttal, you have the answers that they’ve given you to use against them. 

So they’ve told you these things. You asked them these questions. And you told me, just now that this is the problem and we can fix that. You know, we’ve already talked about how we can address it. You’ve already said that that’s what you want. So what’s the real objection? Do you really value the money over the cost of making you better?

Sometimes I’ll tell, let’s at least get an evaluation done. Like I always say, I want to make sure that you’re not hurting. If you choose to go elsewhere, that’s fine. But lets at least get that eval so that you don’t have to be hurting right now. We can at least start to take care of that. And usually, by the time they do that, they just end up staying. Once you get them booked for the eval, they will end up staying for good.”

It’s no different then what I’ve been saying for years.

You find the thing that’s more important than money and you sell that to your patient.

It’s not about money, it’s not about the problem, it’s taking away the symptom the problem creates.

And we can SILL do that with Telehealth.
