The Complete Case Study

How a vet clinic decreased no-shows, increased compliance,
recovered lost clients, reduced staff workload, and amazed over 1,000 clients.

Problem

Dr. Dorian and his staff at Market Street Veterinary Clinic had tried all of the client communication software solutions out there. Unfortunately, none of them seemed to make a material impact on their business. The practice was doing well but after digging into the key business metrics Dr. Dorian knew his no show rate was too high, not enough clients were coming back in, and his staff were overworked and stressed out.

Solution

Market Street Veterinary Clinic implemented the full PetDesk Solution – apps, email, text, appointment reminders, health service reminders, and the rest. By taking a mobile first approach Dr. Dorian was able to reach many more clients and better retain them over a two year period. The easy to use system also lightened the workload for his staff and they were able to devote more time to clients in the office, delinquent clients, and tasks that grew the practice.

Results

Dr. Dorian saw immediate results in the decrease of no shows and increase in appointments. Clients also embraced the app and after a year more than 1,000 clients had downloaded the app and were requesting appointments without creating more phone calls for the staff. The practice was able to generate over $200,000 in increased revenue and saw improvement in all areas – especially staff and customer happiness.
