Handling Phone Calls and Routine Receptionist Duties

In fact, our answering service packages are based on usage, meaning you pay for what you need and nothing more. Whether we’re taking calls 24 hours a day or during select hours, our pricing is based on usage. You can have a medical receptionist from Absent Answer on call 24/7 for a fraction of what it would cost to have an hourly employee working in your office.
