Queen West Physiotherapy and Acupuncture Celebrates One Year of Receiving Text Messages
For the first company to reach one year with Biz Text, receiving text messages was not a hard decision for owner Len Kiroplis. This Brampton business has increased service to their patients and become a Trailblazer in Customer relations.

"Sometimes, it is hard to hear the patient on their end, or it is busy with patients, and equipment running on our end," comments Head Administrator, Bal Pannu, "A text eliminates all of that so we can attend to their needs quickly." Queen West keeps their Texting Dashboard open on a browser, at all times and has a speaker attached that "dings" when a new message comes in and continues until it answered.
Texting makes it easier for the patient to cancel or say they are running late without feeling judged or that they are causing a problem. Jas sent a text at 10:57 a.m. to cancel and rebook an appointment, minutes before Queen West opened. At 10:59 a.m., she received a reply, "Hi Jas, I canceled today, and we will see you tomorrow at 2 p.m."
"Texting gives more of a feeling of a relationship. It is informal. Such as texting a friend; there is a sense of trust and comfort," comments Kiroplis. It allows patients to communicate at a more personal level to reveal and discuss things that they may not be able to do in person or over the phone. In doing so, they can receive a service they may otherwise have not reached out for in a call.
No matter where Kiroplis is or what he is doing, he gets the text and can reply directly from his phone; as he would any text. The patient sees the Queen West number, not his personal number. The system allows to set business hours, and when a patient texts after hours they receive a message.
Texting provides a way for customers to quickly deal with something and get the sense that it is delivered, checking it off the to do list. For example, they do not have to wait until business hours and can send a text during off hours. If the business is open, they are not waiting on hold, not having to leave a voice message, or not having to try again later.
"Allowing customers to text has taken us to another level of service; without it, we would not be where we are today," comments Kiroplis
