Stop Making Those Silly Business Mistakes

I am an absolute shopaholic. I spend a lot of time patronizing literally every type of business under the sun. As an avid consumer, I believe that I have advice that I can give businesses that can help them become more successful and serve there customers better. Even though I am the only one working on this blog, much of what I write comes from endless conversations with friends and family members who have experienced frustrations when patronizing businesses, big and small. My name is Alice Stark and I hope you enjoy the journey that we will be going on together!

Redoing Your Medical Office On A Budget

Business Blog

Your medical office can become outdated without your notice. However, the whole idea of redoing your medical office can be daunting. Fortunately, you do not have to have a big budget to spruce up your medical office. A few creative ideas are all you need.


The first thing you want to do is to get rid of clutter. Identify those things you don't use and don't need and dispose of them. Think of that old broken desktop computer, discolored charts, etc.

Color Scheme

A fresh coat of paint will do wonders for your office and won't cost much. A new color scheme will instantly transform your space.

Soft Furnishings

Carpets and drapes do not cost much and will complement your new color scheme. Go for more conservative patterns that will not need to be changed often. If your drapes are still in good shape, a good steam-clean job will do.


If your furniture is solid, you may not need to change it. You can simply change the upholstery, always keeping in mind the color scheme. However, if your budget allows it, you could buy new seats for your waiting room.

When it comes to seating, consider the number and variety of people who will be using the space. You may be surprised to discover that you actually need fewer seats than you imagined in your waiting area. Ensure seats take care of the disabled, larger persons, children and older people. Go for material that is easy to clean and water resistant. Vinyl is a good option.


When your patients are waiting, and they will wait; the first thing they look at is most likely the walls. Posters with threatening images and statistics may depress or alarm your patients. Pleasant pictures and naturals scenes will be better appreciated. Consider display cases with useful educational exhibits that are informative, rather than threatening. Or display awards, local information, or other fun items for patients to browse.

Medical Equipment

If your equipment is working and up to date, you may not need to change it. However, if the equipment is either not working properly or outdated, consider a replacement.

You do not have to change all the equipment at once. Even just one commonly used piece can make a huge difference. You could start with the examining table since all patients must use it. Some medical suppliers can exchange your old equipment for new equipment at a lower cost.

A pleasant well-equipped medical office will instantly make you and your patients feel better. And you do not have to go bankrupt to get it done.
