Research and Publications
UT – San Antonio – Division of Hand Surgery
- Engaged in retrospective study evaluating the effect of surgeon-dependent (e.g. quality of communication with surgeon) vs. surgeon-independent (e.g. interaction with office staff) factors in the determination of patient satisfaction with office clinic experience. Data collection performed using Healthgrades patient satisfaction assessment.
- Engaged in prospective cohort study comparing active (verbal exchange between surgeon and patient) and passive (email) online review requests from patients in private practice setting. The purpose of this study was to determine the efficacy and superiority of active vs passive review requests.
