Reviews - What do customers think about The Healer's Calling: A Spirituality for Physicians and Other Health Care Professionals?
Good Book Nov 4, 2006
This book was very interesting and informative to me because my husband and I are Chaplaincy volunteers and Hospice volunteers. So, this book gave me some good information to help recognize how some doctors and/or medical people can either help a person spiritually or simply ignore the case and just deal with the physical part of the person.
God's Grace spoken in every word!! Feb 24, 2005
I think all three of the previous reviews for this book have merit. However, I read this book in 1997 when it came out and have been giving it to every nurse, minister, psychologist, psychiatrist, and physician with whom I come into contact professionally. The aspect of the patients/parishioners not knowing the results of medical tests or what will God think of the outcome of his/her health results and how those will bring reexaminging of his own life is revealed in this book. EXCELLENT!! I loved this book as an avid patient, client, friend, and author.
beautifully written and covers very important information. Nov 16, 1999
This is a wonderful book -- written with compassion, insight, and grace. Every physician and other health care professional could benefit from reading this -- and their patients, in turn, will benefit as well.
Excellent book for health care professionals and lawyers! Nov 26, 1998
This book was wonderful! A must for medical students, law students and both lawyers/doctors. Puts the reality of the true duty of a "professional" into perspective. Truly a delight. Unquestionably a five star book. Dr. Sulmasy catches the essence of what is missing in the current debate on the role of the health care professional.
A "MUST" for any health care professional who CARES!!! Dec 4, 1997
I found Dan Sulmasy's book "just what the doctor ordered!" He hit the target right on the mark in providing practical spiritual ways to become and sustain ourselves as truly caring physicians and health care providers. Very timely in this age of "managed cost" reimbursement, increasing legal, patient, and life demands on the physician / caregiver. We are currently using Dan's book as a discussion guide for our monthly spiritual support group for physicians who come from every specialty!
