Power to the Patient
The Treatments to Insist on When You're SickBook - 2002
Health care is not what it used to be. House calls are a thing of the past, doctors are spending less time with their patients, while managed care and other insurers are often paying for the least expensive -- and not necessarily the best -- treatment. As a result, there's really no way to know whether you're receiving the best possible therapy when you're sick. Now bestselling author Dr. Isadore Rosenfeld, one of America's bestknown and most trusted physicians, arms you with the facts you need to make sure you are getting the best care. Written for the layman with the author's trademark sense of humor, this book contains the latest proven information on the proper diagnosis and treatment of almost forty of the most common ailments that afflict Americans. It spells out the specific tests and medications to insist on, when to insist on a second opinion, and when to insist on being hospitalized. In short, virtually everything you need to know when you're sick.
