Fathy CA, Pichert JW, Domenico H, et al. JAMA ophthalmology. 2018;136:61-67.

Patient complaints are associated with increased malpractice risk. This retrospective cohort study of more than 1300 ophthalmologists sought to determine whether ophthalmologist age was linked to likelihood of receiving unsolicited patient complaints. The authors found that unsolicited patient complaints occur less frequently among older ophthalmologists.
