Doctor and patient, now at odds
Increasingly, research and anecdotal reports suggest that many patients don't trust doctors. About one in four patients feel that their physicians sometimes expose them to unnecessary risk, according to data from a Johns Hopkins study. And two other recent studies show that whether patients trust a doctor strongly influences whether they take their medication. The distrust and animosity between doctors and patients has shown up in a variety of places, from books to the Internet.
