A Woman's Hero's Journey Through Medical Malpractice and Concealment Mar 4, 2007
This is a wonderfully written book, and a truly compelling story, about the hero's journey of Janet Mitchell - who journeyed from medical malpractice and long-term concealment, to pain and unnecessary surgeries, to overcoming her fear of suing her doctors, to becoming a brave advocate and wise teacher on behalf of patient consumer rights.
Janet, a devout Christian who was acculturated in the tradition of not suing one's doctors, overcomes this resistance and finds her faith strengthened by believing in herself and by telling the truth, not only for her sake - but the sake of every American.
Her willingness to take a stand is a very worthwhile read - and I recommend her book of the same name to everyone.
Hope in the face of injustice Feb 13, 2007
Janet Mitchell has written a remarkable account of how she trusted God to bring about justice in her life--when the medical community and legal system seemed to team up against her. If you've suffered injustice--whatever that may be--read this book to gain courage to take a stand for what's right.
Taking a Stand by Janet Lynn Mitchell Jan 29, 2007
The author's amazing story is an example of how seriously adverse events in one's life can become a blessing to oneself and others. Janet weaves her times of doubt, pain, and despair through resilience, love, faith and courage to take on the medical establishment and make them accountable to their patients. Her life story and her continued actions to help others and be a voice for them are a priceless gift.
A Must Read Jan 25, 2007
Every person who has ever had surgery or is going to have surgery should read this book. Janet exposes the "Good 'Ole Boys Club" code of silence when it comes to blatant medical malpractice. She also offers an excellant guide to on how to get the most out of your doctor's appointment. It's unfortunate that Janet had to endure such a travesty, but God has given not only a voice to share with others, but laws have been changed to prevent what happened to Janet from happening to other innocent victims.
Taking a Stand Jan 25, 2007
This book is one of the biggest eye openers that I have ever read concerning Medical Malpractice Law and the American Judicial System today. Never before did I realize that so many patients suffer everyday from doctors committing an act of Medical Malpractice and yet only a small percentage of those victims actually get their case heard within their state courts. This is where Janet's book "Taking A Stand" is so powerful. Janet takes her own personal experience and couragously writes this book, to not only help others but also to show her faith and love in God. Due to circumstances in Janet's case and her will to follow God, California Laws have been changed today and many other victims will be encouraged to follow God's will and stand up for what is right.
