Physician Evaluation Program. The group has also asked PMS members to evaluate their doctor visits. The results will be entered into a computer, and consumers will be able to request a summary of the evaluations for any physician. The group plans to make public summaries of the evaluations, including average waiting times and the extent to which doctors are encouraging prevention.
