With all the useful information available on Physicians Practice, it is easy to become overwhelmed.

With this in mind, the tip of the week is a chance to reflect on some of the wisdom found all across the site.

"You can customize patients' experiences based on their behavioral styles. The behavioral styles fall into two broad categories - task-oriented and people-oriented - each of which has two subtypes.

The subtypes of the people-oriented category are Advocate (starts conversations easily, likeable) and Emissary (slow to anger, empathetic).
