"I Object!" - Overcoming Patient Objections


 I Object!

Overcoming Patient's Objections

 Mary E. Schmidt, ABOC, CPO 

Course Description: 

These days, it’s hard to argue with frugality.  Sometimes, however, quality should win out over price.   And proper eye care should fall in the “quality” category. This course will prepare your staff to help patients recognize how to make educated decisions based on a greater understanding of what they are getting for what they are paying. It will also allow you to respond effectively when a patient objects about the price of products or services.  After you learn these skills, they will walk away from your practice feeling as though they know more about the importance of quality and eye care.  And they will.
