This study examined self-reports of engagement, confirmation, and satisfaction by Spanish-speaking physicians within the context of the relationship with Spanish-speaking patients. Previous research suggests the interaction is transactional and both physician and patient mutually contribute to the relationship. Results demonstrated engagement and confirmation positively influenced relational satisfaction of physicians (R2 = .58, F(1,14) = 19.38, p < .01; R2 = .29, F(1,14) = 5.84, p = .03, respectively). Additional results are reported. Implications and directions of future research are discussed within.
