I’m Cheryl Janis and I help doctors, dentists and healthcare solopreneurs build flourishing practices. I do this by designing nurturing healing environments that keep patient retention rates high and referral business flowing.
Unlike conventional interior designers, I use an integrated holistic and evidence-based approach to design—evaluating the patient experience from the moment they walk through your door until the time they leave, and every step in between.
I create designs so focused on the patient experience that the patients themselves spontaneously spread the good word about their experience at your healthcare office to family and friends and on social media. This happens so often that patients themselves become your best marketing asset.
I am the author of The Color Cure: How to transform your healthcare office, clinic or treatment room into an oasis by choosing the perfect paint and The Waiting Room Cure: The healthcare practitioner’s guide to turning waiting rooms into nurturing, highly-profitable, referral magnets (available for purchase in August 2017).
But really? I’m a cat with many lives.
When I was 17 years old I almost died in a car accident. At 27, I crashed into a grandma cow at midnight in Brazil, which left me in the hands of a neurologist who couldn’t speak a word of English.
And at 41, I was a car sandwich for lunch while stopped at a traffic light minding my own business.
I’m now 1 glorious year shy of hitting the half-century mark (accident-free for the last seven) and with all four hands and feet intact (Yes indeed, my Guardian Angel is watching over me).
My brother (the dentist) likes to joke that I’m a cat with many lives.
And he’s right.
This cat knows what it’s like to be a patient in pain. A patient who is a master at waiting for her name to be called in for a doctor’s appointment.
And a woman who has plenty of experience (14 years to be exact) designing all manner of medical, dental, healthcare and wellness settings for a living.
I’m like the User Experience designer in the tech industry–the person who is hired to make software friendly, easy and fun to use for the end consumer. The kind of person who gets into the details of the design to make it the best it can be, and who also makes sure all the parts work together as a magical, relaxing, supporting whole.
Through my intensive Design Spacelift method and my books, I offer design solutions necessary to attract your perfect clients, build relationships (with patients and staff) that stick, and keep referral business flourishing.
“What kinds of wellness, medical and healthcare environments have I designed,” you ask?
