It has already been established that the social origin and the demographic factors have an influence, among other things, on medical practice. What about it in the Bas-Rhin? Our survey's objective consists of emphasising on what motivates the choice of the type of medicine. METHOD: Phone survey on a representative sample of 1010 persons aged between 25 and over 64, residing in the Bas-Rhin. RESULTS: Participation has been of 66.3%. Among participants, there are 49.1% of men and 50.9% of women. 9 among 10 participants state that they have a family doctor. More women claim they are more likely to see a homeopathic doctor and/or a professional of alternative medicine. 8 among 10 persons have their blood pressure checked. 50.9% of participants have a blood analysis made in order to determine their cholesterol level. Building on these medical practices, several groups have been created. 54.1% of participants belong to the same group, having in common the facts of having a family doctor, having their blood pressure checked, and never seeing a professional of alternative medicine. The female participants are properly followed up on the gynecological point of view. Only 29 among 500 women have never had a cervical smear done. The carrying out of a mammography raises with age. When fearing a potential cancer, the first step taken by 56.2% of participants consists of seeing a generalist doctor, whereas 65.9% would prefer going to the hospital to perform further tests. As far as treatment is concerned, 76.8% of them would rather go to a specialised department, even if it is located far from their home. Special attention is to be paid to the fidelity of the population of the Bas-Rhin toward their family doctor. He represents the main link of information between the patient and the prevention policies that have been implemented over the last years.
