Consultation Rooms

What Do Patients Want?

Consultation rooms are where crucial relationships and experiences take shape. A comfortable environment is essential for enabling effective communication between a patient, caregiver and others involved. A thoughtful design can create a sense of calm and order.

Besides a comfortable ambiance, two features of a thoughtful consultation room are privacy and accessibility. Privacy is important for intimate patient/caregiver exchanges, and accessibility to waiting areas improves efficiency. Furnishings that accommodate technology are important to provide information and instruction. Creating a favorable patient experience requires a sensitive design for color, lighting, furnishings and more.
