Scribes and lawsuits

I am curious how the doctor who uses a scribe differs in his thinking
process, as he obviously must change as he makes a conscious effort to
dictate one finding/impression/note and ignores the others.  Also, how does
this scribe capture or fail to capture the patient input?

Does having a scribe help or hinder the relationship between the patient
and physician?  Can the scribe catch any errors that the doctor might make
as to the info given by the patient or in the electronic record, assuming
the scribe may see some data that the doctor does not.?
