Background and Objectives: Pre-hospital emergency services are one of the main determinants of the services outcome. Patients' satisfactions from these services lead to promoting their trust and finally improving the services quality. The aim of this study was to survey patients' satisfaction from pre-hospital emergency services in Tabriz.

Material and Methods: In this cross sectional study, data were gathered using a validated questionnaire. Sampling was conducted among pre-hospital emergency services users in 2013 in Tabriz. Using Cochran formula, 1052 samples were selected through systematic random sampling method. Data analysis was performed using SPSS 21.
