Patient satisfaction often is used as a proxy for quality of care, with physicians evaluated and reimbursed based on patient satisfaction scores. As a specialty, dermatology is lagging in quality improvement studies. To fill this gap, we conducted a prospective study of targeted interventions administered at outpatient dermatology clinics to determine if they resulted in statistically significant increases in patient satisfaction measures, particularly among Spanish-speaking patients. This study, along with the existing body of research, suggests the need for continued work to maximize patient satisfaction in dermatology.
