  • Data are %, % ± SEM, and ORs (95% CI). Probit random effect and logistic models examined minority patient-physician race/ethnicity interactions. Models were adjusted for patient age, sex, preferred language, number of comorbidities, number of primary care visits in 2005, Medicare status, number of medication classes taken for condition, pill burden, geocoded education and income, physician age, sex, race/ethnicity, language, panel size, and number of diabetic patients in panel. Race/ethnicity discordant patients are the referent (Ref) group.
