Dr. Mary Catherine Beach Interviewed in NY Times

An article in the “Health” section of the New York Times on November 20, 2008, quoted Welch Center Core Faculty member Mary Catherine Beach, MD, MPH, as an expert on physician-patient interactions. The article, entitled “Too Much Information” explored whether patients were made more or less comfortable when their doctor disclosed personal information about himself or herself.

The author consulted Dr. Beach upon reading her article “Is Physician Self-disclosure Related to Patient Evaluation of Office Visits?” which appeared in the Journal of General Internal Medicine in September 2004.
