Testimonial on ChartMaker® Mobile

I wanted to send a quick note regarding Chartmaker Mobile App which has been such a help to us.  We are a solo practice so Gordon is always on call for himself.  When he is out of the office, Chartmaker Mobile allows Gordon to have all of the patient’s pertinent information at his fingertips.  Gordon and I were recently out of town, and when he talked with patients, having their allergies and pharmacy information made the follow up so much faster.  And you can hit the pharmacy number and the call is on its way.  The new addition of progress notes, labs, and diagnostics makes it even more useful. If you haven’t used the app yet, download it today!  Gordon & Karen Tussing  (Gordon P. Tussing DO, PC) Click here to sign up for the mobile app >>>
