No it wouldn't, but I would consider telling my doctor at the next appointment. If you're feeling this way, I bet their is a whole lot of other patients who are too! You're not doing your doc or the practice any favours by not letting them know about the receptionist
I do it all the time, I hate rude staff. Now I'm unemployed it actually pisses me off that these people with shitty customer service skills can be employed but I can't. I've only ever had compliments about my customer service. You really need to put a complaint in though, they need to know they've lost a patient because of her.
If the receptionist does their job, even with appalling manners, I'd suck it up for the sake of a good doctor. They are as rare as hens teeth.
I've had this before but with the accounts lady. She stuffed up and was so rude, called me names and had me in tears, hung up on me. When I called back and said I'd talk to anyone but her the other receptionists were totally on my side and said she was always rude to people like that. Speak up! There's no need for he to be like that.
Tell the practice manager. Enough complaints will result in her getting some training or the sack.
Tell your doctor and phone and speak to the practice manager. Its very important to keep consistently going to a doctor you know as they will have a better background and understanding of your medical history.
It would annoy me but I would suck it up. If it's a really good doctor I wouldn't let a minute or so worth of rudeness interfere with me seeing my preferred doctor, especially seeing I'm making an appointment to see the doctor not the receptionist
Contact the practice manager and let them know. I was a practice manager and often got caught up in the back office and didn't get to hear enough of what was going on at the front desk. Some staff will cover for others, but management needs to know if there is someone who either needs more training or replacement. It's not just professionalism - people like that can be a medicolegal risk and no one wants that!
I would make a complaint, good doctors are hard to find and i bet you aren't the only person who feel like that about her
I am a big fan of I beg your pardon, put me through to your supervisor now!
Some people just have a different manner, you may find it rude if you compare her to someone overly nice
My husband has a rude receptionist and I have asked him to speak to her about her rudeness. He didn’t want to tip the scales and wanted to remain neutral. That is until I said that he could speak to her and address this professionally or I could speak to her the next time she was rude to me. I don’t think it’s weird to want to go somewhere else if the first point of contact is awful. After all they are the first impression. I don’t agree with just sucking it up either. I believe we stand for what is appropriate for ourselves but still maintaining kindness.
