Pros

DrChromo has a good payment plan compared to other similar EHR which helps to save money. It keeps improving its functionality.

Jd

Jean d'Amour U.

I love the ability to take templates that other users have created and then edit off of those. Also like that square is integrated with it for payment.

NH

Nathan H.

The feature we liked best was auto posting of insurance payments. Also, the reporting package had great flexibility.

CC

Carol C.

Pros

It been a good experience they do provide a lot of webinars and help if you ask for it. It has been easy to work with PatientNow and there are helpful when you do reach out.

LC

Louise C.

I like that customer service is very good, the trainers are excellent and the ease of creating notes and modifying templates is simple.

MP

Michelle P.

This system is great for a smaller business like mine or larger surgical practices like my husband's. The actual software is easy to use and easily learned by even new employees.

TB

Tonya B.

Cons

Pushy salespeople, bad experience with sales and billing staff, expensive. Took 6 months to integrate billing software with clearinghouse, poor follow up with customer service regarding this process.

SS

Scott S.

Its handled by auto generated scripts and it only gets to a live person via email, not a phone call, when the problem is out of hands and escalated by an irate consumer.

NR

Natalia R.

We are just finishing the contract but we will not renew. This is very difficult to use and it’s very useless for medical spa.

MF

Meryl F.

Cons

Sometimes they get to the end of all the questions and the submit button does not work. If I start a note on a patient and then do a procedure, often that note disappears and I have to start over.

MP

Michelle P.

Reporting overall is terrible. There are too many functions.

AV

Adriana V.

But we also found implementation staff to be unfamiliar with the system. Incomplete and incorrect information have been very costly to our practice needing to redo many aspects of the initial build.
