Health behavior and experiences of physicians. Results of a survey of Palo Alto Medical Clinic physicians.


The results of a health practice questionnaire submitted to the 152 physician members of the Palo Alto Medical Clinic, 126 of whom responded, indicate a generally favorable profile of preventive medicine strategies. Physicians generally smoke less, drink about the same, exercise more, and use their seat belts more than the population at large. They also can expect to live longer. These results are compared with those of other physician surveys and surveys of the general public.
