Abstract : This is the first of a planned series of reports that will examine the health-care perceptions of naval personnel and their health-care providers. To date, about 60% of the data to be collected from female personnel attached to shore stations has been gathered. A preliminary, descriptive analysis was completed on this data set of 292 female enlisted and officer personnel. The results indicate that the majority of the personnel were satisfied with the health care they received at Navy sick calls. More specifically, the majority (about 80%) of the personnel who had been to sick call for obstetric/gynecologic health care appear to be satisfied with the promptness and professional competence of health-care providers and their with level of comfort when communicating with providers. However, a substantial percentage (approximately 20%) of the personnel were not %atisfied with the overall obstetric/gynecologic health care they received at sick call.
