Abstract

EVIDENCE-BASED ANSWER

Although patients generally prefer their physicians to wear more formal attire and white coats, any effect on satisfaction with medical care is weak and varies significantly based on differences in cultural and clinical settings (SOR: B, systematic review of cross-sectional surveys and 2 cross-sectional surveys).
