In the present study, we set out to open a discussion about the way doctors deal with journalism. We wanted to find out if the first think that they need journalists in the daily landscape of their profession. Isolated in linguistic and epistemic insularity, physicians are often asked to interact with journalists and adhere to the discursive construction rules of the press. Thus, the discursive interaction of the two worlds often collides. Disconsideration and expedition in dramatic and superficial have become the most common features of health journalism in Romania. In the following, we present some of the results of a broader survey, results that relate to the attention physicians give to journalists.
