Physicians today juggle more responsibilities than ever. From insurance to EHRs, from staffing to billing, physicians navigate a multitude of challenges in addition to patient care. Fortunately, answering patient calls is one responsibility that Responsive Answering Service can take off a physician’s plate. With 24/7 live coverage, bilingual agents fluent in English and Spanish, and strict HIPAA compliance, our live answering service not only enhances patient communication but also allows physicians to dedicate more focused time to their core responsibilities where their medical experience is most needed.

A Specialized Answering Service For Physicians

For over 40 years, Responsive Answering Service has catered to the medical community, providing highly skilled specialized answering services to physicians. Our agents are trained in medical terminology, HIPAA-compliance, and call etiquette. Whether it’s call overflow during business hours or emergency calls over a holiday weekend, we put our state-of-the-art technology to work for you so every call is answered according to your practice’s protocols.

We are proud to serve a variety of physicians of different specialties and sizes, including:

  • Primary Care
  • Specialists
  • Urgent Care
  • Telemedicine Practitioners
  • Surgeons
  • Psychiatrists and Therapists
  • OB/GYNs
  • Geriatric Specialists

Our service is equally effective for solo practitioners, group practices, and larger facilities with multiple departments and locations. This partnership helps physicians and their in-house staff deliver the highest standard of care without being overwhelmed by the constant stream of inbound phone calls.

Bilingual Agents Answer Calls In English or Spanish

As a physician, you may see a diverse population of patients and appreciate the value of communicating in their preferred language. At Responsive Answering Service, we take pride in our agents who are proficient in both English and Spanish. Allow our highly trained bilingual staff to answer your practice’s calls according to your exact instructions. Whether a call should be routed to your billing department, forwarded to your front desk, or escalated for an urgent medical matter, we uphold the highest standards of professionalism. 

Additionally, our healthcare care answering service representatives are trained to handle sensitive medical issues and customer information according to HIPAA standards. You can have peace of mind knowing that each patient’s data is protected from the moment they call in.
