Inhaltsangabe: A pediatrician in New York inspires her own patient, a girl with sickle cell anemia, to become a doctor herself.
An oncologist in Chicago lets go of her preconceived ideas about gay life as she becomes friends with a man who has AIDS.
A general practitioner in Chattanooga uses literature to heal, prescribing novels and poetry to go with good medicine.
These are just three of the wonderful doctors who practice The Best Medicine and who, along with their patients, can be found in these pages. Each of the twenty-five doctor-patient relationships portrayed in this book reveals ways we can all improve our health, our lives, and our communities.
For too long the value of the doctor-patient relationship has been ignored in the national debate over healthcare. Many Americans, who have lost their connections to their doctors, may even view such a relationship as old-fashioned and maybe even too expensive. The truth is, doctors who know their patients well can provide not only the best, but the most cost-effective care as well.
All of us eventually play the patient's role. At some point a relationship with a doctor becomes central to our lives, even a matter of life and death. The Best Medicine shows the value of forming a close bond between doctor and patient well before a crisis arises, and it shows us all how to do it even in the world of modern healthcare.
Vom Verlag: "Dissatisfied with the delivery of health care? ... The Best Medicine could do much to restore the expectations of that relationship--which is the heart and soul of medicine." --C. Everett Koop, M.D.
