A new pediatric urgent care establishment opened in Smithtown, not far from my urology office.  I saw some things I liked. . .and some I did not.

I liked:

  • Ample parking
  • Nice building
  • Electronic medical record system
  • Advanced "feel" to the office
I did not like:
  • Unfriendly staff
Will all the good outweigh the one negative?

We'll see.

The case for an answering service

I finally did. I got an answering service. Almost 5 years since I opened my doors and probably 1000 calls answered myself, I hit the wall. I am too tired of answering my own phones.

Unfortunately it was not until after I ticked off a patient and was fired as their doctor.
