How does Doctor-Patient Communication Differ Based on the Gender of Doctor and the Gender of Patient? An Analysis of Entertainment-Education Based Network Medical Drama Grey’s Anatomy.
Unformatted Document Text:  Doctor-Patient Communication in Grey’s Anatomy 18 to observe any significant potential differences along the line of combination between female- female, but it was not supported. Position of Doctor and Doctor-Patient Communication The result showed that there is no significant difference in doctor patient communication due to the impact of the position of the doctor. Doctor’s Gender and Effect on the Length of Communication During Visit As shown in Table 4 below, female doctor characters’ visits were longer than male doctor characters (mean of male/female doctor character = .675/.755 respectively, although there is no significant p value). Consistent with this, patients made more (though not significantly) communication with female doctor characters in terms of time length. They made to male doctors (M=.68) and female doctor (M=.72). Due to the very insignificant amount of difference in result, I did not produce the case of female and male patients with the male and female doctor and characters separately. However, it was found that female patients spoke more to female doctors than did patients in the other cells (here p value is insignificant).

Position of Doctor and Doctor-Patient Communication
The result showed that there is no significant difference in doctor patient communication 
due to the impact of the position of the doctor. 
Doctor’s Gender and Effect on the Length of Communication During Visit
As shown in Table 4 below, female doctor characters’ visits were longer than male doctor 
characters (mean of male/female doctor character = .675/.755 respectively, although there is no 
significant   p   value).   Consistent   with   this,   patients   made   more   (though   not   significantly) 
communication   with   female   doctor   characters   in   terms   of   time   length.   They   made   to   male 
doctors (M=.68) and female doctor (M=.72).  Due to the very insignificant amount of difference 
in result, I did not produce the case of female and male patients with the male and female doctor 
and characters separately.  However, it was found that female patients spoke more to female 
doctors than did patients in the other cells (here p value is insignificant).
