from JAMA Dermatology via Medical Xpress
Patient perceptions of their physicians may affect outcomes so it is possible that physician attire may affect those outcomes. Dr. Robert S. Kirsner of the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, and coauthors, surveyed the attitudes of dermatology patients. Participants were shown photographs of physicians wearing business attire (suits), professional attire (white coat), surgical attire (scrubs) and casual attire. They were asked to indicate which physician they preferred in response to a series of questions.
