“I’m Sorry to Hear That…” Proven Service Recovery Techniques

Complaining about something is your client’s way of saying, “I need your help.”  How you and your colleagues handle that expression of unhappiness has a lot to do with whether your client or patient remains loyal or seeks care elsewhere.  Unresolved complaints can result in negative comments to potential clients, adverse publicity, and malpractice suits.  Service recovery skills help you and your team respond to complaints with greater ease in order to preserve and improve relationships.
