Patient Retention Philosophy
Our initial focus for patient retention is to stress the importance of the patient’s commitment to compliance throughout the course of the research study. We understand how valuable our patients’ time is, and want them to be fully aware of the requirements involved when they come in for their initial visit with us.
Secondly, frequent communication with the patient is crucial. Patients will routinely receive appointment reminder calls the day before each scheduled visit. They are also reminded of any special instructions for that visit including reminders for returning study medications, fasting before an office visit, supplying medical records, and returning diaries.
Finally, we make every effort to make our patients feel very appreciated during the time they spend with us, and let them know we value the time, dedication, and commitment they have contributed to the clinical trial process.
