If you are interested in taking charge of your own health care and/or if you are responsible for someone’s care, this book is for you.
This book is full of compelling stories that illustrate the problems that patients encounter in health care and provides concrete, practical solutions. The worksheets in the appendix provide examples of what to say and do and can be modified for one's own situation.
Topics covered in the book include: finding the right doctor, asking the right questions for the best treatment, making the most out of short office visits, preventing a misdiagnosis, cutting costs on prescription drugs, harnessing the power of the Internet for learning about medical issues, fighting back when insurance claims are denied and keeping safe in a hospital.
I highly recommend this book as a means to learn how to take back your health care into your own hands. It is available on Amazon.com for around $10.
