20/20 Money Episode #80 – Managing Your Schedule to Profitability with Dr. Gina Wesley, OD

May 18, 2020

Hello, and welcome to this episode of 20/20 Money! My guest on today’s show is Dr. Gina Wesley. Gina joins the show to discuss various ways in which scheduling has impacted the profitability of her practice. We talk about the direct and indirect benefits of having a scheduling philosophy and why empowering your team is an important component to helping you manage an efficient practice. We also discuss the importance of communicating and setting expectations with patients is important regardless of the type of exam or the journey that they went through (normal exam vs emergency vs walk-in) and examples of language that you can use to communicate to patients that you understand that their time is valuable as well. We also discuss one of the biggest culprits that exists in an office which can throw off the schedule (hint: it may or may not be who you think it is) and how you can fix that problem and we wrap up the conversation with her pre-appointing process and how online scheduling now plays an integral role in her recall process (including the strategic placement of her “Schedule Now” button based off the Z-pattern of how website visitors consume content).

As a reminder, you can get all the information discussed in today’s conversation by visiting our website at integratedpwm.com and clicking on the Learning Center. While there, you can also set up a 20-30min Discovery conversation to learn a little bit more about what it means to work with our firm or check out any number of additional free resources like our eBooks and on-demand webinars.

And with that introduction, I hope you enjoy my conversation with Dr. Gina Wesley.
