Listen to your team. Your team -- individually and collectively -- has more interactions with patients than you do. They have good ideas to improve customer service, collections, scheduling, and customer service. Encourage your team to come up with suggestions, review their ideas, and then implement the best ones.
Don't micromanage. You hired your team members for a reason. Let them do their jobs. If they need additional training, provide it for them. But there's no way that you should be handling any administrative tasks. Your time is too valuable to be spent on nonclinical tasks that can be performed by your team.
