It is horrible.

I like that I could write free notes.

Every little thing you add requires extra money.

The worst!

Initially, it was okay including customer service.

When I signed the contract, everything seemed reasonable. It was much later that I discovered what I had gotten myself into and when I need help the customer service was absolutely terrible!

Kareo is easy to use and the functions are super easy.

The billing part has a lot of steps to follow to get to the result.

The features that any billing service requires, Kareo has it. Kareo’s billing system can easily be integrated with any EHR system, making it easy to use for the providers. The auto-post feature set up for insurances makes Kareo a strong candidate for clinics of all sizes.

They need to improve their customer support.

Kareo billing

The billing system is recommended by many vendors. The system is easy to use and their customer support responds promptly.

The previous patient activity can not be viewed in patient statements.

The system is user-friendly. It is easy to teach, learn, and use.

I am a new user; it would take time to notice things about a system that I don’t like.

Customer support is not good.

I can easily use Kareo on my tablet.

Customer support is not good at all. I am unable to send e scripts of controlled substances and have tried to get in touch with customer support so that they can help me out but couldn’t get in touch with anyone.

The price of the system and the features it provides are amazing. It is easy to use. They offer great support and a library of tutorials, etc.

There isn’t anything major, support is always there to help.
