    • Description:
      Estimates of the use of physician services are presented by the health and sociodemographic characteristics of the patients, the type of physician contacted, whether the patient actually talked to or saw the physician during the contact, the place of contact, the reason for the choice of a particular place or physician, the patient’s travel time to the place of contact, the health conditions discussed, whether surgery was performed, and the weekly and annual patterns of contacts. Also presented are estimates of the annual use of physician services and the interval since the person last saw a physician. All estimates are of the U.S. civilian noninstitutionalized population and are exclusive of contacts which occurred during overnight hospital stays.
