This article analyses and describes a seldom disseminated and used technique in Latin America: the telephonic interview. This technique was used in a PhD thesis studying social and epidemical impact on patients treated by a Medicinal Plants Program at the University of Chapingo (México). Interviewing the patients of a University Program allowed knowledge of their socio-epidemical profile (quantitative data) as well as to learn about their experiences during the therapeutical process (qualitative data); this aspect turned out to be very enriching to the research itself. Therefore, it is assumed that it is possible to combine qualitative and quantitative aspects within the telephone interview.
