from HealthLeaders Media
From Feb. 19:
What can incent a patient to trust a physician, follow her directions, and remember the interaction with satisfaction? One recent study released in The BMJ suggests that a conservative and professional style of dress — complete with the quintessential white coat — is where trust, patient compliance, and patient satisfaction begin. The study finds that the majority of patients prefer physicians in professional attire, as defined within the study as "a collared shirt, tie and slacks for male physicians and blouse (with or without a blazer), skirt, or suit pants for female physicians."
