We surveyed our patients to assess their willingness to discontinue Papanicolaou testing. Our findings differ from those of previous studies, with 72% of our eligible respondents voicing willingness to discontinue screening. There may be many reasons for this, including linking the recommendation with the name of the patient's own physician.
