Some practices handle conflict better than others

For patients already anxious about their health, even during well visits, it can be particularly unsettling to hear voices raised or accusations flying. It may be a receptionist dealing with a patient who has just been informed that his copay was raised. It could be an office manager confronting a billing clerk over a documentation error. It could be a physician assistant’s personal troubles spilling into the workplace. Whatever the reason, conflict is a cancer in the healing environment. It must be contained.
