According to a new study, doctors only spend an average of 11 seconds listening to you before interrupting.

Researchers from the University of Florida, Gainesville,
and the Mayo Clinic examined the first few minutes of 112 consultations between patients and their doctors.
The visits were videotaped and occurred in clinics throughout the United States.

According to Mother Nature Network, the study found that patients were interrupted 7 out of 10 times, just seconds after starting to speak.
Only one in three doctors gave their patients enough of an opportunity to describe their concerns.
