(IANS) Patients with more sympathetic, understanding doctors have better outcomes and fewer complications, a study suggests.

By measuring a doctor's understanding of a patient's concerns and an intention to help, researchers found a link between diabetic patients' outcomes and their physicians, the Daily Mail reported Tuesday.

The study conducted by a team from Thomas Jefferson University along with Italian experts evaluated the relationships among 20,961 diabetic patients and 242 primary care physicians they were enrolled to in Parma, Italy.

Researcher Mohammadreza Hojat said: "This new research study has confirmed that empathic physician-patient relationships is an important factor in positive outcomes."
