From: Patient satisfaction is biased by renovations to the interior of a primary care office: a pretest-posttest assessment

Domains Change in satisfactiona after renovation in 4 domains
Univariate (95 % CI) P-value Multivariateb (95 % CI) P-value
Appearance of the office 0.29 (0.17–0.41) <0.001 0.26 (0.14–0.38) <0.001
Qualities medical assistant 0.16 (0.06–0.28) 0.003 0.17 (0.05–0.28) 0.006
