Background: Appropriate relationship between physician and patient can increase patients' trust and prevent from their confusion and repeated visits to different doctors. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to determine the dominant pattern of physician-patient relationship among outpatients referring to Shahid Sadoughi Hospital.

Methods: This research was an analytical and correlational study carried out on 300 patients referring to Baghaeipour Clinic. The data collection tool was a standard questionnaire including 10 general items and 19 attitude questions. SPSS16 software was applied for data analysis; Chi-square test, Pearson and Spearman correlation coefficients were used in this regard.

Results: Based on the findings of this study, the most dominant pattern of physician-patient relationship was guidance-cooperation pattern (% 57.5) followed by mutual participation (% 37.8), and active-passive (% 4.7) patterns. The type of physician-patient relationship pattern had a significant relationship with the physician's specialty (P = 0.002). 

Conclusion: Considering that the most effective pattern of physician-patient relationship was the mutual participation relationship pattern, increasing patients' awareness and encouraging them to get more involved in the process of treatment can facilitate better access to health.
