Talking To Your Physician

by: Lawrence W. Gold, M.D.

Talking To Your Physician is a lighthearted attempt to deal with a potentially serious problem in medical care, the deteriorating relationship between patients and their physicians. As the healthcare system becomes more complicated, expensive, and stressful for both patients and their physicians, especially under Obamacare, we may need, more than ever, to rely on that relationship to guide us through the system.
The book makes important observations and specific suggestions about how to improve patient care, reduce malpractice claims, insure patient rights, and allow physicians to practice in a more rewarding manner.
Dr. Gold does not pretend that solutions are easy or quick, but he does believe that improving the patient-physician relationship is a good start under any healthcare system, including Obamacare.
