The medical receptionist is often the first contact a patient has with the medical facility. Giving patients personal attention can go a long way in establishing their positive experience with the facility.
The receptionist should give the patients a warm welcome when they enter the office. Even if you can't verbally greet the patient, getting eye contact with them lets them know you are aware of their presence and will get to them as soon as possible.
If the patient brings a problem to the receptionist, it should be addressed by immediately bringing it to the attention of the nurse, clinician, or administrator as appropriate.
