102 women coming from los Angeles were divided according their aculturation characteristics (mexico-american vs. anglo-american) and compared in terms of their expectations with respect to the physicians’ practices. Several variables such as age, illness, etc., were controlled. The results show a lack of intercultural differences in the expectations of women. These results could imply a reconsideration of the role of cultural differences in the physician-patient relationships.
