At first glance, I was not impressed; but the old cliché “don’t judge a book by its cover” is definitely true when it comes to MedLook 3.0. This multi-functional system is packed full of features. Thanks to the expertise of Jeff Fagerman of Fagerman Technologies I was able to see what a dynamic and useful tool this would be for any size medical practice. Sometimes support systems and resources can be lacking, but not in this case. MedLook 3.0 is the most well thought out and has the best collection of training materials, tutorials and support options that I have come across. I would highly recommend this system to anyone looking for an easy and functional application to handle everything from scheduling appointments to billing.
