The article ponders on the effect of evidence-based decision support tools on patient perception of physicians. It mentions the tendency of some patients to become skeptical of doctors who use a computer in their diagnosis. Also noted is the preference of undergraduate and graduate computer science students for physicians who rely on intuition rather than those who rely on computer aids. Family practitioner Joel Diamond stresses the efficiency brought by using decision-support tools.
