The results of a survey among Russians showed that many do not want to see doctors for four reasons. 53.5% do not have enough time to visit a doctor, and 27.7% do not trust doctors. 14.5% of respondents believe that it makes no sense to seek help with a slight indisposition, and another 4.2% are completely afraid of doctors.
Sociologists have found that if the patient's symptoms do not go away within a week, 46.6% of citizens call a doctor.
As it turned out, a third of the inhabitants of Russia, feeling that they are sick, still wait to the last and go to a medical facility only as a last resort.
The study showed that when choosing a medical institution, 33.7% prefer to get an appointment at a paid clinic, and only 27.8% seek help from public clinics.
The survey also revealed that 2.4% of Russians prefer non-traditional medicine.
More than 1,000 respondents from all federal districts of Russia with a population of over 100,000 people aged 18 and older took part in the joint study by AlfaStrakhovanie and Invitro, RIA Novosti notes.
