image for Lean and Scary Doctors More Skilled and Safe

Dr. Majapour Mileeka, Director of Behavorial Sciences at Berkerly Univeristy, has discovered that doctors with a lean and peculiar appearance are generally superior in both their safety and quality of service provided when compared to regular doctors.

This study was based upon a cumulative ten year study of over 1,000 physicians from across the country and spanning most medical areas.

"It appears that our image of how a doctor should dress and appear to us is wrong when trying to select a highly qualified physician", according to Dr. Mileeka at a California press conference this week.

Dr. Mileeka went onto to describe that his findings identified the ideal features to use for physician selection included long gray hair, poorly fitted glasses, a lazy eye, brown poorly fitting suit, stained tie and yellow/brown teeth. The young and handsome stereotypes of how doctors present themselves to us are based upon the media and afternoon television programs depiction and are not based in solid research.

Dr. Mileeka pointed out, however, that not all doctors should be considered for public appearances and that the general public may not be ready to see highly trained and skilled doctors on prime time television.

Selecting a qualified physician has been a challenging task for most Americans. This study allows consumers a valuable tool in locating a good doctor within a fairly short amount of time. By simply asking for a picture of the physician , consumers are now able to make an accurate and qualified selection on the spot.

Dr. Mikeeka feels that this discovery will revolutionize the approach we take to selecting our personal physicians and potentially could save millions of dollars in frivilous law suits.
