What does a Patient Services Representative do?

Service representatives take customer questions, complaints, comments, and concerns. Using a computer, telephone, or another digital communication form to respond to a customer’s inquiries, they treat customers with respect and strive to assist the customers within company policies to ensure they are satisfied with their purchase or transaction.

Service representatives give customers information about products and services, take orders, and they process returns. They help customers understand a product by answering questions and are sometimes considered members of sales teams. They maintain a positive, empathetic, and professional attitude toward customers at all times and respond promptly to their inquiries. They acknowledge and resolve customer complaints to the best of their ability and understand the products so that they can answer customer questions or comments. They also keep records of customer interactions and transactions. Service representatives need a minimum high school diploma, a general education degree, or equivalent.
