A study reveals Americans spend more time researching a new car than choosing a doctor or hospital.
researchers from healthgrades surveyed more than 76-hundred adults. when asked to rank eight key relationships ... most listed their doctor second ... only to their spouse. but the majority spent very little time researching their medical options.
in fact, most participants said a hospital's location was just as important to them as its mortality rate. and only half said they felt they'd made the right choice in a doctor or hospital.
experts say consumers should do their homework by researching patient satisfaction and doctor performance before making this important decision.
