There has been conducted a questionnaire survey of 380 physicians on the rational phytotherapy in Ukraine. Results of investigation showed that 88.9% of physicians prescribe herbal medicines. Results of the study showed that older doctors prescribe herbal medicines more often than their younger colleagues (p<0.05). Practically all physicians (96.0%) did not know about compliance of patients to use phytotherapy in general. In the same time, 41.3% of physicians noted that patients often were inclined to replace prescribed synthetic medicines with herbal medicines in a possible clinical situation. But only 56.8% respondents were positive about the patient’s choice of herbal remedies.
