An accompanying CD allows the podiatric physician and staff to customise a wide assortment of template forms, from memos for office procedures, employee job descriptions, forms for new employees to sign, and patient consent forms, to creating your own, personalised office employee handbook. This is truly a tool your office cannot do without.Covers the following topics:Clinical Care.

The second section discusses how the podiatric physician's office should manage patient appointment scheduling, insurance, new patient processing, missed appointments, and patient care outside the office.
