“More than 90 percent of patients reported satisfaction with their primary care physician across several categories in a new survey. However, many also communicated concern regarding healthcare costs and medical debt.
“The survey was commissioned by the Physicians Foundation — a nonprofit organization seeking to empower physicians to take the lead on delivering high-quality, cost-efficient healthcare — and conducted by Harris Poll.
“The survey was comprised of 1,511 adult patients between the ages of 27 and 75 who had seen the same physician twice in the same year. According to the results, 95 percent of participants reported being satisfied with their physician’s ability to communicate medical information intelligibly, 96 percent reported feeling respected by their physician, 93 percent reported satisfaction with how well their physician listened to them and 92 percent conveyed satisfaction regarding their physician’s knowledge of their medical history.” Source: Becker’s Hospital Review, Physician Foundation
