Future of Healthcare in Jeopardy Aug 10, 2007
Let's hope all of our elected officials read this book. Dr. Thurston lays down the facts with the authority of someone working "in the trenches." I especially like his idea about health care savings accounts coupled with low cost, high deductible catastrophic insurance. As interconnected as health care and Medicare/Social Security are to the rest of our economy, this book is a must read for anyone who cares about the future of our country.
DISROBE COMPLETELY Aug 1, 2007
This book was an excellent, easy, and comical read. This book was hard to put down. I rarely read non fiction, but this book was worth it! Why isn't this doctor running for a public office?
Insightful and Interesting Read! Jul 6, 2007
I started and finished this book over a weekend. It made me feel every emotion imaginable.... I promise you WILL repeat some of the stories to friends because they are so touching, funny or flat bizarre! All of this while still discussing the serious topic of the doctor/patient relationship. A big door is opened for discussion on this topic that frustrates so many of us that experience the challenges and constant changes in our insurance coverage!
This book is worth every minute of your time! (I found this book after I was given a copy of the book 1000 Questions about your Pregnancy.....another great and well written read for all pregnant women!)
Outstanding! A great read! Terrific! Jun 18, 2007
I am in the OB/GYN Healthcare IT business, and was given this book recently. While stuck on a number of airplanes trying to make my way back home, I read it and would strongly recommend it to anybody who's ever had to navigate the healthcare industry in this country, or who has struggled to understand the impact that managed care and PPO's are having on the quality of care being delivered in this country and on the critical doctor/patient relationship. The stories the author relays had me laughing out loud at some points and then shaking my head in disbelief, tears welling up in my eyes, in others. Should this gentleman ever decide to retire from the medical field, he could surely launch a second career as a comedian. I had a blast reading this and would strongly recommend it!
Right On! Very Eye Opening and HONEST! Exceptional! May 14, 2007
This book is not only engaging and informative at the same time but it also depicts a clear and vibrant understanding of what doctors encounter from the very beginning. It also explains how some doctors actually do have emotions and DO care about their patients (regardless of who they are or what they've done) even though some insurance companies would prefer they focus more on the paperwork that generates so much money for their pockets! I appreciate the honesty of the author as well as the vivid descriptions of the real life cases that support the belief that doctors rarely get to be doctors these days because of insurance companies.
