New Survey Reveals that Communication Breakdown Between Physicians and Patients Hinders Weight Loss Efforts
Date:11/13/2013

WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J., Nov. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A new survey conducted by Eisai Inc., in partnership with the Obesity Action Coalition (OAC) and The Obesity Society (TOS), reveals a disconnect between patients and physicians when discussing weight loss. The survey found that only 56 percent of overweight or obese adults report ever having discussed weight with their doctor, yet all physicians surveyed say they counsel their overweight and obese patients about diet and exercise.

  • Although many patients feel hopeful (41 percent) and motivated (20 percent) following a weight loss discussion with their physician, some adults also reported feelings of guilt (20 percent) and embarrassment (18 percent).
  • "With obesity rates continuing to escalate across the nation, improving the patient/physician relationship is critically important in the evaluation and treatment of patients who are affecte
