Pros

I think there are some steps that could be taken to improve appointment reminder, but right now, I think it's the best solution out there.
I love this software, it's so easy to use and it's just great. Especially since I can't remember anything.
Ease of us was a nice feature the options to text or email were great.

Pros

I love how easy it is to setup and use this software. It has made my job so much easier and my customers love it.
Really excellent all-around great support and it's been super helpful.
I like that it is very easy to use and it does save information so next time input - it pulls it up.

Cons

I have been using it for five years and never had a single problem - until my PC broken down. They let me upgrade the software and move it to the new computer by transfer the license.
Our appointments are booked sometimes months in advance. If a client misses, it is hard to get them back in and if they miss, we can't fill the spot therefore lose revenue.
It can be a little difficult to schedule two appointments with the same start time, but it can be done.

Cons

There's some things that could be implemented that would prevent mistakes on our end.
I can't think of anything about it that is disagreeable.
It solves our problem having to call all of our customers the day before to remind them of their appointments.

GoReminders

Great program. Saves us time and effort from making daily phone calls to confirm appointments.

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

I like that it stores the patient's name and phone number. That makes it easier, quicker, and more accurate for future appointment reminders that need to be sent.

Cons

I wish there was a way to search by patient name without knowing the date of their appointment. There are times when I need to see if a reminder has been sent, but I don't want to take the time to look for the appointment date in my company database.

Vendor response

Hello Pamela, Thank you for the wonderful review about GoReminders. We are glad that GoReminders is working wonders for your appointments. Any feedback is good feedback, we are always working on making GoReminders more practical. You can easily search by patient name on the Manage Customers page. Let us know if that helps you out! Thanks again for your review. -Noah, Customer Support

GoReminders

GoReminders helped us reduce our No-show rate and communicate easily with our patients

Reviewed 8 months ago

GoReminders has helped us to reduce our No-Shows and increase our rebooking rates. All our patients love the appointment reminders. We also use GoReminders to contact people who have missed appointments or need to reschedule and it's a super easy way to communicate and get those patients back on our books. We've been using it so long now its like second nature. Customer service is always really great, they even implemented a number of requests/suggests we had - which we thought was super :)

Pros

We've been using GoReminders for a while and found it very easy to use and set up. GoReminders is very flexible allowing us to create own messages and sequences. You can also easily go into calendar and update any appointments.

Cons

Unfortunately it does not integrate with our CRM which is more of an issue with the CRM than with GoReminders. The only thing we really have a complaint about is that if you are set up to send a sequence of reminders, it will only stop sending reminders if patients/customers/clients respond with R or Reschedule. However, its easy enough to go change the appointments or stop reminders in the calendar.

Vendor response

Thanks so much for your amazing review of GoReminders. We're so happy that it's easy for you to use and setup, and that your patients love the reminders! Often that is the most important aspect! I understand what you're saying regarding your complaint, and we actually do have additional features for that which you may not be aware of. I'll reach out to you right now with info on those features. Let us know if anything ever comes up! Best, Noah, Customer Support
