Patient congestion in specialist physicians' offices is the outcome of the insufficiency of patient referral system
Deputy of Treatment of Zanjan University of Medical Sciences said: the overcrowding in some doctors' offices is due to the cultural problem of how to refer to the doctors in the community; referral to the family doctor is not a common matter. Ali Reza Armanikian spoke with Fars reporter about "The deficiency of physicians and overcrowding of patients in some of doctors' offices", stating that the lack of sufficient doctors is not true. The issue lies in the specificity and the work of some physicians who are trusted by the public.
