Advice for patients

Our book presents the 8 Pillars to Better Diagnosis, and contains dozens of “Prescriptions” for better care. We provide excerpts from our Prescriptions here with practical answers to demonstrate what you can do in the E.R., the hospital, or doctor’s office to make sure that you are listened to and that you are engaged as equal partner in your care every step of the way.

We will be keeping this section regularly updated with advice for patients. Please contact us for suggestions.
