Abstract

This study compares the role of community gynecologists and family physicians, seen from the patients' perspective. A sample of 126 female patients in family practices and 212 patients in gynecological practices were surveyed about their preferences and expectations of whether their doctor should address personal, family and sexual problems. The effects of covariates (such as the type of doctor, patient age, family status, child desire) on patient expectations were simultaneously assessed by multiple logistic regression. Between 40% and 70% of the patients contacted confirmed the family-oriented approach, both in family practices and gynecological practices. Family practice patients more frequently stressed their doctor's knowledge of personal and family aspects (odds ratio [OR]=1.7, 95% confidence interval [95% CI]=1.1-2.7); whereas communication about sexual problems and a possible desire to have a child was more often considered as the gynecologist's domain(OR = 2.8 [95% CI = 1.8-4.4] and OR = 1.8 [95% CI=1.1-2.8] respectively). Female patients older than 30 years were more often interested in communication an family related affairs (OR=2.2, 95% CI=1,4-3.4). These data illustrate that many patients would like both their community gynecologist and their family physician to take notice of their personal and family life conditions, including sexual problems and to initiate communication about these subjects.
