Pleasing doctors: when it gets in the way

Klitzman, Robert L.

Complex dynamics in communication between doctors and patients are of ever growing importance in the United States and elsewhere, as managed care may limit the amount of time doctors have with many patients, and high tech treatments (as opposed to low tech human interactions) become ever more profitable and common. More careful consideration of these issues will be in the best interests of patients and, in the long term, doctors as well.
