Patients don't care if doctors have tattoos or piercings, study finds
While patients prefer a doctor in a traditional white coat, they apparently don’t care if their doctors have tattoos or piercings. A study recently published in the Emergency Medicine Journal involving 924 patients at a Pennsylvania trauma center found that tattoos or non-traditional piercings didn’t impact patients’ perceptions of doctors’ professionalism, competence, approachability or knowledge.
