We thought we would start the New Year off with a little house cleaning for our practices. Are your clients exposed to clutter as soon as they walk in to your practice? Do you have papers and post it notes on every surface possible? Have you been going through the motions because "that is the way we've always done it" without really challenging to question if its the most efficient way to do something? I think we can say we are all guilty of this in our practices! Well it's time for a fresh approach to creating a more organized and efficient practice for 2016.
