Assessing and Handling Toxic Veterinary Clients with Dr. Cynde Courtney and Josh Vaisman

On today’s episode, we switch from dealing with toxic staff and open up a conversation about toxic clients and how to handle those difficult conversations. You’ll hear from international consultant and The Jerk Researcher, Dr. Cynde Courtney and Founder & Lead Positive Change Agent of Flourish Veterinary Consulting, Josh Vaisman. Dealing with difficult clients at your clinic is stressful for you and your staff. How do you assess and what do you do? What can you say to deescalate anger or annoyance? The ultimate goal is to find a way to make it right in the midst of frustration and reach a level of understanding. It's important to avoid reactionary responses, remove any biases, actively listen, and remain genuine. We discuss ways to empower these types of clients and how to prepare your staff for these interactions to protect their own well-being.
