Abstract:

Patient satisfaction was assessed in adjacent family practice N 341 and non-family practice N 390 clinics at a Naval Regional Medical Center. Results indicated that patients in the family practice clinic were significantly more satisfied with care than those in the non-family practice clinic. Although older people and males were generally more satisfied with care, demographic factors did not differentially affect patient preferences for the family practice approach to ambulatory care.
