We designed and implemented a survey of physician knowledge, attitudes, and practices with respect to Chagas disease in the state of Tabasco, Mexico. Seventy-eight public sector physicians from across the state responded via REDCap, an online survey capture tool. Improved performance on knowledge-based questions ( < 0.01) and an increase in decisions to screen ( = 0.04) were associated with previous training specific to this disease. Our results provide important descriptive information regarding knowledge, attitudes, and practices among a group of public sector Mexican doctors and highlight the importance of Chagas disease–specific physician training for identification and, ultimately, treatment of patients affected by this disease.
