Encouraging patients to make their appts

Hi - we are having a hard time getting patients to keep their appointments.  I understand a 5 day/wk 2 hrs/day commitment is tough, but we probably only have 60% of our patients consistently show on a daily basis.  Any suggestions on how to approach this?

I have found that if the patients do not have to wait very long to get into the chamber and the process is efficient when there are being treated, they are more likely to keep their appointments.  Continually reminding them that the benefits of HBOT are a cumulative effect and that they will not see as much improvement/benefit if they are not receiving regular treatment, can also help.

Good luck
