When I first started my clinic almost 20 years ago, my track record for getting the patient to jump on-board and do everything I asked them to do wasn’t so great. It felt like I had to babysit them all the time and we never made much forward progress.
But when I realized there are three primary components (maybe four) to ensure patient success by setting the correct expectations right up front, my patient compliance jumped to nearly 100%.

Hopefully, this will provide some perspective about how to start your patient relationship on the right foot by setting proper expectations from the very beginning.
