#GMedPoll: Physicians, do patients trust older #physicians more than younger physicians? What do you think?

A patient calls a medical office, asking for an appointment with the most senior physician in the practice. No appointment is available for 4 months, but the staff member suggests the patient could get an appointment the following week with one of the junior associates. Does the patient agree? (MedPage Today)

70% of G-Med physicians answered yes, patients trust older physicians more than younger ones.

One physician said: “The older a doctor is, the more experienced he should be, but what about new techniques, new knowledge and quick decisions — these things speak for younger doctors.” — Diagnostic Radiology, Germany.
