Physicians are speaking.
What is Your preference?
“Stop the cold calls and trying to grab my attention. My mind may be on why my patient is not breathing well, why her kidneys are failing, and a whole host of other problems. Trust me, whatever you tell me on those calls is not going to be heard. I may smile and nod but my mind is not there. In fact, I, as well as many other doctors, no longer accept these cold calls. I will, however, meet reps if they schedule an appointment and I will then give them my complete attention.”
– Linda Girgis, MD
- “Respect my time”
- “Tailored to my needs”
- “Make things more electronic”
- “Check in for test drugs samples as we would need them soonest”
- “Prefer no visits”
- “They should always seek customer opinion and schedule a meeting more through video call”
- “Create more online pages to assist in easy information assess”
- “Fewer visits, always by appt, no drop-in visits”
- “Schedule appointment in advance”
- “Schedule times to come in”
- “More streamlined”
