Many Radiologists Think Time Spent on The Phone With Referring Physicians Is Excessive, While Many Referring Physicians Think the Time Was Well Spent or Want More Time, Study Suggests

The study found that almost “half of surveyed radiologists felt they made too many calls, while none of them felt the rate of communication was insufficient,” but “only 1.3% of referring physicians thought the frequency of direct communication was excessive, and the vast majority felt the rate of calls was either appropriate or they desired more contact.”
