22 julio 2014

The physical and mental well-being of people with cancer may be affected by how they feel about their relationship with their physician and by differences in attachment styles, finds a new study. Patients who feel anxious and uneasy with their doctor may be impacted the most. «Anxiously attached patients may experience and report more physical and emotional problems when the relationship with their physician is perceived as less trusting,» said the lead author.
