It’s time to take a day off, kick back and relax. (Unless you’re scheduled to work. Or unless you’re on call. Or unless I get sick. Or unless my kid gets sick. Or unless there’s an emergency.)
Seriously though, while you are relaxing (or working) pat yourself on the back. And pat your colleagues on their backs too.
Between all of the medical school work, residencies, fellowships, patients, and lives forever impacted, you absolutely deserve a few Rx’s of appreciation and thanks.
We hope you enjoy it. We thank you. And while we might not look forward to our next appointment with you, we do hope to see you around!
Happy Doctors’ Day from all of us at Soliant!

Superbugs have been causing issues, claiming the lives of patients, and perplexing physicians for years. These antibiotic-resistant invisible monsters can create a dangerous situation within a clinical or hospital setting in a very short period of time. It can be extremely difficult to eliminate the contamination from these superbugs in a reasonable time, particularly when you need to flip a patient room and prepare to treat another individual.

Patient satisfaction is important to any practice, and often that satisfaction begins with a clock that starts ticking the moment they walk in the door. Just as your time is important to you, your patients’ time is important to them, and you want to do everything in your power to make them feel as if that time is respected by your practice.
One of the biggest complaints that most of the general public has when visiting any physician is the time spent waiting for their appointment. While there are always emergencies and issues that arise, with some best practices in place, you can reduce wait times and leave the majority of your patients feeling more satisfied with their appointment.
