Custom live physician answering

Every aspect of our physician live answering service is tailored to your specifications. When we’re answering calls on your behalf and linking callers to on-call personnel, our aim is to function seamlessly as an extension of your business, serving both your needs and those of your patients.

Our operators answer each call live, in the name of your office, filtering calls based on subject matter and urgency. Based upon instructions that you put in place, non-urgent calls can be held for office hours and delivered via email, text message, fax, page, or direct phone call. Calls requiring immediate attention can be relayed to your on-call right away following predefined protocols.

Easy on-call scheduling

On-call scheduling is an important part of physician answering services, and we make this process as easy as possible. Utilizing a web-based on-call scheduling system, your personnel can update your on-call rotation on the fly 24 hours a day, which automatically updates the system used by our agents. In addition, we provide each doctor answering service account with their own Client Services Representative, who is available to assist with any on-call changes or account updates that may be needed.

We have been providing telephone answering services to physicians and other medical professionals since 1967.
