Appointment Booking: Now and Then
Everything in the world changes with time. And we know it very well. The same applies to the experience of appointment scheduling. If we talk about the world that existed before two or three decades, the appointment service was managed by writing a letter to the concerned doctor, lawyer, or any other professional. After getting the confirmation, the appointment was assumed as booked. Later, the invention of the telephone made things different and a little easy. Scheduling an appointment was via a telephone call. Many professionals still accept the appointments via phone call.
