In this examination of the doctor-patient relationship, Drs. Wen
and Kosowsky argue that diagnosis, once the cornerstone of
medicine, is fast becoming a lost art, with grave consequences.
Using real-life stories of cookbook-diagnoses-gone-bad, the doctors
illustrate how active patient participation can prevent these
mistakes. Wen and Kosowsky offer tangible follow-up questions
patients can easily incorporate into every doctor's visit to avoid
counterproductive and even potentially harmful tests. In the
pursuit for the best medical care available, readers can't afford
to miss out on these inside-tips and more:
- How to deal with a doctor who seems too busy to listen to
- 8-Pillars to a Better Diagnosis
- How to tell the whole story of your illness
- Learning test risks and evaluating whether they're worth
- How to get a working diagnosis at the end of every doctor's
By empowering patients to engage with their doctors as partners
in their diagnosis, "When Doctors Don't Listen" is an essential
guide that enables patients to speak up and take back control of
their health care.
