Study Says Chatty Doctors Forget Patients

“I think all of us on the team thought self-disclosure is a potentially positive aspect to building a doctor-patient relationship and that we ourselves were quite good at it,“ said Susan H. McDaniel, a psychologist who is associate chairwoman of the department of family medicine at the University of Rochester and lead author of the study. “We realized that maybe not 100 percent of the time, but most of the time self-disclosure had more to do with us than with the patients.“ (Also reported by MSNBC, CBS News, USA Today Today, NPR, Washington Post, Scientific American, Chicago Tribune, Forbes, Atlanta Journal Constitution, and other publications/broadcasts)

UR packs a punch for area economy

The University of Rochester is responsible for more than 30,000 jobs directly or indirectly, spent $145 million on goods and services locally last year and pays salaries and wages of more than $1 billion a year. And as the area’s largest employer, the university’s “ties to Rochester are vital and inextricable, and they are growing,“ President Joel Seligman said on Tuesday. The university is almost an island physically, bounded by the Genesee River and Mt. Hope Cemetery. But in a speech before about 400 alumni, donors and administrators at the Memorial Art Gallery, Seligman argued that UR is already a major part of the community medically, culturally and educationally—and that its role economically is growing.
