This article examines choice for STD health services among patients suspecting a STD.
A total of 825 patients who sought medical treatment at an STD clinic, a Family Planning Clinic or a General Practitioner participated in this study.
Special STD clinics are not well known among patients visiting their GP or a Family Planning Clinic.
Both perceived unprofessionality and embarrassment were reasons for not asking a GP for medical treatment and for not being loyal to their GP after a first visit.
Most respondents evaluate the 16 service attributes as important and/or annoying.
Differences in beliefs and evaluations about the separate service attributes existed between the three choice behavior groups.
