Out of Office Message

Vacation!!!!!!!!!!!! You get those now, whenever you want!

Don’t forget to have an Out of Office message for both your email and your voicemail.

If you have someone covering for your current clients, I wouldn’t put their info in your autoresponder or voicemail. Make sure you give your clients the covering clinician’s contact info. I’ll sometimes email it to them AND have them take a picture of the number with their phone. 

Email Autoresponder:

“Thanks so much for getting in touch! I’m out of the office until XX/XX and will return messages on that day.

Take care, [Your first name]”

If you have an online scheduling option, don’t forget to include in the body:

“If you’d like to schedule an appointment, please click here.”

Voicemail

“Hi! You’ve reached the office of [your name]. If this is a clinical emergency, please hang up and dial 911. I’m out of the office until XX/XX and will return messages on that day. Take care.”

If you have an online scheduling option, don’t forget to include:

“If you’d like to schedule an appointment, please visit my website [your website].”
