"A fabulous read." --Greater Good
"Dr. Ofri's book is essential reading in Medical Humanities. She traces her own experiences with patients from all backgrounds, and uses clinical vignettes to confess her own feelings--disgust, fear, shame, gratitude, joy. She weaves together personal anecdotes and medical learning in a compelling account of her medical decisions and reflections. Highly recommended."--Sara van den Berg, Professor of English and Medical Humanities, Saint Louis University
"I have been a family physician for almost 50 years, and despite all those years of medicine, I was in tears about half the time while I read What Doctors Feel. I have recommended that every AHMA member read it."--Bill Manahan, Executive Director at Minnesota Holistic Medicine Group
"Dr. Ofri's anecdotal writing style makes this book a perfect accompaniment for the academic setting. Her real-life experiences can be incorporated into a variety of health science curricula bringing course theory together with practical application. As a result, her readers critical gain insight regarding why applying theory in the practice of medicine requires empathy for the physicians and proactive cooperation amongst colleagues."--Christine Whittrock, Associate Professor of Instruction in Regulatory Affairs, Temple University
"I describe patients to my students and ask them to role play either the doctor or the patient. I see a difference in their responses after they have read What Doctors Feel. They are more studied in their answers. Part of medical education now is not only core competencies from a factual standpoint but also a social standpoint. Dr. Ofri has a way of communicating those lessons in a clear a cogent and very personal fashion."--Beth Dollinger M.D. Arnot Ogden Medical Center
"What Doctors Feel is the perfect book for my research and teaching on the subject of lack of empathy in medical school students."--James Asa Shield, Jr., MD, Professor, Chairman, Department of Psychiatry, Virginia Commonwealth University

Reseña del editor:

A look at the emotional side of medicine--the shame, fear, anger, anxiety, empathy, and even love that affect patient care

Physicians are assumed to be objective, rational beings, easily able to detach as they guide patients and families through some of life's most challenging moments. But doctors' emotional responses to the life-and-death dramas of everyday practice have a profound impact on medical care. And while much has been written about the minds and methods of the medical professionals who save our lives, precious little has been said about their emotions. In What Doctors Feel, Dr. Danielle Ofri has taken on the task of dissecting the hidden emotional responses of doctors, and how these directly influence patients.
How do the stresses of medical life--from paperwork to grueling hours to lawsuits to facing death--affect the medical care that doctors can offer their patients? Digging deep into the lives of doctors, Ofri examines the daunting range of emotions--shame, anger, empathy, frustration, hope, pride, occasionally despair, and sometimes even love--that permeate the contemporary doctor-patient connection. Drawing on scientific studies, including some surprising research, Dr. Danielle Ofri offers up an unflinching look at the impact of emotions on health care.
With her renowned eye for dramatic detail, Dr. Ofri takes us into the swirling heart of patient care, telling stories of caregivers caught up and occasionally torn down by the whirlwind life of doctoring. She admits to the humiliation of an error that nearly killed one of her patients and her forever fear of making another. She mourns when a beloved patient is denied a heart transplant. She tells the riveting stories of an intern traumatized when she is forced to let a newborn die in her arms, and of a doctor whose daily glass of wine to handle the frustrations of the ER escalates into a destructive addiction. But doctors don't only feel fear, grief, and frustration. Ofri also reveals that doctors tell bad jokes about -toxic sock syndrome, - cope through gallows humor, find hope in impossible situations, and surrender to ecstatic happiness when they triumph over illness. The stories here reveal the undeniable truth that emotions have a distinct effect on how doctors care for their patients. For both clinicians and patients, understanding what doctors feel can make all the difference in giving and getting the best medical care.
