6 Patient Types: Are You One of Them?

My colleagues in Europe have just created a new graphic that identifies 6 of the common patient types. They describe each type in terms of attributes, how a patient approaches doctor visits, how s/he reacts to results, and more. And once you have identified your closest type, there are bits of advice included to help get the most out of your experience with the doctor.

Of course, each patient is different, and not everybody falls into a set ‘type’, but the special relationship with our doctor(s) has a big impact on our health, so it’s worth taking a moment to reflect.
