Appointment Scheduler (PM)

We are happy to announce the following enhancements in Appointment Scheduler:

Search results include patients that match both the search text of ‘Brown’ and the Filter by Status drop-down selections.

Note: The new filter functionality is available in all patient search fields in the Appointment Scheduler.

“The money I have invested in AdvancedMD is miniscule compared to the return. I have never been more efficient – ever – in my professional life as I am now.”

“[Our] patients are very well-educated and well-informed, and they want to see results quickly. The practice has to run extremely efficiently and be accessible to them. The nice thing about [AdvancedMD] is it has allowed me to be more efficient both in and out of the office. Now I don’t have to come back into the office, which is great for my family and everything else. It saves me a lot of time – probably an hour a day on the three days I work in the second office.”

Keith Berkowitz, MD
