To be sued less, doctors should consider talking to patients more
from The New York Times
Doctors call it defensive medicine. They order extra tests, perform extra procedures or push for more office visits because they think that without them, they're at greater risk of being sued. But studies don't support the notion that this extra precaution reduces their risk. What might help physicians avoid being sued is getting along better with their patients. Or at least, they could become better communicators.
