The first three consultations between 18 new patients with poorly controlled non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus and their medical specialist were videotaped. Changes in doctors' and patients' verbal and nonverbal communication behaviors were analyzed, and those most strongly related to patient satisfaction were distinguished. Discussion includes a pattern for an effective doctor-patient relationship. (Author/EMK)
