The Doctors discuss a study in the Emergency Medicine Journal that suggests that a patient's perception of their doctor is not impacted by what their doctor has as far as tattoos and body piercings. The Doctors like these findings! Dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra explains the study was done in a legitimate way, beyond just a survey.
They had seven ER physicians over the course of nine months see patients with fake tattoos and piercings on, and then separately see different patients without the tattoos and fake piercings. The patients weren't just giving their perceived attitudes but rather their thoughts after interacting with the doctors. ER physician Dr. Travis Stork believes this is because the competence of the doctor, not his or her looks, is what matters most to patients.
Tattoos and piercings continue to be popular. One-third of millennials, 18-25 years old, have some form of a tattoo and a quarter of people have piercings now. Check out the video to see what Dr. Travis might look like with a tattoo sleeve!
