Communication at its Finest

Scenario 1:

While helping a patient, Sarah, the other front office assistant, calls Justin over to answer questions regarding the patient intake process. Justin explains the process to Sarah and then continues to work with the patient at his window. Later that day Justin is frustrated that he had to stop working with his patient to explain a process to Sarah that he has explained a dozen times already. Justin takes to social media to express his frustrations with Sarah and her inability to take care of patients properly even though she has been trained.
