Patients see doctors with varying degrees of concern regarding
their health. While some require tests or treatments, a
subset has severe health anxiety and cannot be reassured
by tests, procedures, or pharmaceuticals but may be
helped, at least temporarily, by a sympathetic listening face
Hence, we designed a questionnaire to investigate health anxiety in
patients recruited from a general dermatology clinic.
The study was reported in the International Journal of Dermatology and can be accessed at this pdf: Health Anxiety in Dermatology
