“Comfort Talk improves patient and provider interaction. Once somebody is trained in it, they’re trained in it forever. For something that costs nothing once trained and that’s going to save you money, it’s a win-win.”
– Ian Lipski, Anesthesiologist
“Comfort Talk benefits the entire department from the person sitting at the front desk to the language that you use to the TV channel that you turn on. You use it on every patient every day, and you use it when you talk to each other too. It just increases the overall standard of your environment.”
