What Is A Medical Answering Service?

A medical answering service, sometimes known as a doctor answering service or physician answering service, is a way for your medical practice to ensure a seamless connection with your patients, doctors, and other medical professionals. Here, the answering service acts as the go-between for medical professionals; scheduling appointments, referring patients to their departments, and patching the triage nurse (or on-call) for emergencies.

With a physician answering service, you can be sure that your patients receive prompt and professional care and your doctors reached timely and appropriately at any time of day. It's useful for medical practices of any size that want to ensure a secure, consistent, and professional communication 24/7.
