What To Say To A Patient Who “No-Shows”

Rate this post

This week I’m taking you back to a weekly staff training session with the Paul Gough Physio Rooms team at my clinic in the UK – where I teach them what to say to a patient who forgets to show up for a session!

(Or worse… cancels last minute)

Watch the show here:

Watch and learn as I teach my staff:

* How to get a patient who no-shows or cancels back on the schedule ASAP!

* Why you should never tell a patient “it’s ok” when they don’t show up

* How to handle the conversation with empathy AND authority

* How to get patients to show up for more sessions

* How to re-sell the value of PT to “drop-offs” or “no-shows”

And so much more…

Watch the show here then hit SUBSCRIBE so you don’t miss out on more daily staff training and business education videos like this.

You are losing money from patients who forget to show up or cancel last minute…

…If your staff can get the “no-show” conversation right – you’ll have a much more profitable business.
