Prefer online results vs office appointment?
A recent study, published in Radiology asked patients about their willingness to go to a doctor’s appointment, and the wait time to get an appointment versus the ability to access test results online much quicker. Some were surprised at the results – many would prefer to meet with a medical professional, if the wait wasn’t extreme.
Those surveyed seemed to understand that attempting to read the results, which aren’t created with patients in mind, but instead, are written for medical personnel, could be confusing and cause more stress than waiting a few days.
