Government and Politics
Lindsay Clark, MD pleads guilty to receiving and delivering to patients misbranded injectable drugs and devices for cosmetic procedures. She also concealed from patients the fact that certain drugs and devices were not approved by the FDA. Patients paid her practice over $1 million for these non-FDA-approved, misbranded products.
Stony Brook Primary Care (NY) sees its patient satisfaction scores increase from 60% to 90% with the addition of a waiting room concierge service. Distinct from front desk staff, the concierge sits at a desk in the waiting room so as to easily be available to patients who need assistance of any kind. The concierge is responsible for keeping patients updated on how far a physician may be running behind, notifying them verbally at 15 minutes and giving them the option to reschedule at 30 minutes. The practice has also installed a notification board with similar information so that waiting patients are always aware of their doctor’s availability.
