E-mails improve patient-surgeon communication

HealthDay/Washington Post, February 19, 2008
A new report appears to show that providing patients with e-mail access to their surgeon appears to improve communication. "Despite the many concerns, we believe that this study shows that the provision to patients of readily available e-mail access to their surgeon provides a very effective means of improving communication prior to patients undergoing elective surgery," wrote the study's authors.
