A medical office should be as comfortable as possible, and finding the right chairs and arranging them in the right layout is an important part of designing your practice’s waiting room. First and foremost, there should be more than enough seats for everyone who is waiting. As a general rule, there should be enough seats so that at least a third of them will usually be empty at any given time—remember that patients in medical waiting rooms value their personal space. Place the reception desk within easy access of the door—the patient shouldn’t have to wander through a sea of other patients to get there. Make sure that all of the chairs are wide enough to accommodate most patients, and that they are both sturdy and comfortable.
