Everyone wants a magic pill!

How can you give your patients what they NEED when it’s not what they really WANT?

Nowadays everyone wants a magic pill when it comes to weight loss. As clinicians, we know it isn’t that easy. If it was, 2/3 of the American population wouldn’t be overweight.

Here are some helpful suggestions for optimal patient satisfaction and engagement:

  1. Keep your weight loss options/programs simple. The more information people have, the less likely they are to act.
  2. Keep the much needed education delivered in small, simple bites. For example, one page guides and/or educational videos no longer than 10-15 minutes.
  3. Provide your education in a variety of convenient ways to accommodate all types of learners (written, video, group & individualized online and at your office)
  4. Run special contests and programs that keep patients engaged with you and your practice.
  5. Open a retail store so patients can acquire quality products that will accelerate their weight loss and increase engagement with you & your staff.
  6. Display educational information everywhere in your office (exam rooms, lobby, bathrooms, classrooms, fitness center etc).

These are just a few ideas. The sky is the limit!  Feel free to share your ideas as well!
