abstract

  • Although patients have confidence in their PCP to care for their skin disease, they have greater confidence in the care provided by dermatologists. Among patients previously treated for skin disease, satisfaction was higher with care rendered by dermatologists vs PCPs. Most patients prefer direct access to dermatologists should they develop a skin problem.
