SZV appointments can now be made by phonePOSTED: 09/27/12 11:58 AM
St. Maarten-In order to register for the first time, register family members, renew insurance or change family doctor SZV’s clients once had to visit the W.J.A Nisbeth Road location in Philipsburg to make an appointment. The Director of SZV announced that these appointments can now be made via telephone.
In the past clients were required to show up due to a general screening process that took place prior to the appointment. This was done in order to ensure that the client’s information was accurate in SZV’s system and that it corresponded with the information the client was providing at the time. It was also a means of avoiding clients having to “go back and forth”. Due to internal upgrades this can now be done via telephone to save the client the time and effort it takes to physically come in to SZV just to make an appointment.
Clients can now call the customer care center at 546-6782, provide the clerk with their full name, date of birth, reason and preferred date and time of the appointment. They will then be screened and advised as to what they need to bring along on the day of their appointment.
“The ability to make telephone appointments is just one of the various efforts being made by SZV while the organization continues to aim to develop more client friendly processes in order to better accommodate its clients,” a release from the agency said.
