To determine physician opinions on the quality of laboratory testing and reports.
Mailed census survey.
Participants were mailed a questionnaire asking for their experiences in use, perceptions of quality, preferences for report content, criteria for choosing a laboratory, and problem areas encountered in testing for human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) or hepatitis B virus (HBV).
All licensed physicians in San Diego County, California.
Physicians were asked a series of questions to which they assigned scores of zero (lowest) to three (highest).
Overall satisfaction percentage was similar for both the HIV-1 and HBV groups.
Satisfaction with turn-around time was the lowest category in both groups.
