In 2019 we are exposed to a whole new realm of social media that we did not see 20 years ago. Many of us, like myself, avoided the social media craze for as long as I could but we now use this as a source to educate and share stories with our clients. The blog we started last year is one of the very many ways we reach out to all of you. As a technician, I am able to share with you topics that are interesting, educating and sometimes funny or heartfelt. We also rely on our Facebook page, Youtube channel, in clinic computer software and website to help us maintain contact with our clients, in addition to the care and attention provided in clinic.
Oakview is considered a paper-light clinic, which means the vast majority of our work is done on the computer. We are fortunate enough to have digital x-ray machines and a wonderful ultrasound machine that allows us to get clear, concise images and get them off to specialists instantly. This helps us get answers quicker, and we don’t have to worry about things getting lost in the mail!
Over the next few weeks, we wanted to pick out a few things that stood out to us as team members of the clinic that help make life a little easier for everyone.
