“One of the best things about this company is the relationship they build from the start—they work at being a partner with us. They do their job well and they are courteous—not just to the doctors, to every member of our staff. Unlike other answering services we’ve used in the past, each and every call taker tries their best to handle the call—they aren’t interested in just turfing it (getting it off their plate).”
