the hospital, thus administrators can do something to improve service quality and make customers more satisfied. One kind of the objects is doctor, and another is IPD patient in a medical center in Taiwan. The result of study shows that patients are almost unsatisfied because the major opinions are negative between patients’ expectation and experiences actually. And then we adopt comparative analysis of the service attention degree of the doctors and their patients, we can know why the patient's real feeling and expectation to be mostly negative. In 11 items, there are four items significant of eight negative items. The hospital administrators and doctors should take serious and contact with their customers frequently in order to catch what is the key point that customers really want.
