  1. Required Reading for All

    Retired RN, everything in this book is right on! I am going to give one to my PCP because he really tries to keep up, but as stated in the book, it is not possible for him to read everything that’s out there. We patients need to be more astute about ourselves.

  2. Patients Beware... screw-ups really do happen.

    The book is timely and certainly addresses some of the problems with medicine today.

    Physicians, especially those in Primary Care, have serious constraints on the way they must practice medicine. Adequate time to spend with patients, insurance restrictions, Medicare and Medicaid as well as RX formularies come to mind. Physicians should be able pay attention to you, the patient instead of looking at their computer screens. They need enough time to listen to patients in order to accurately diagnose problems. The end results of these constraints are often, “ScrewUps.” Pressed for time, too often clinicians rely on what they think is the problem is and fail to “Look For The Zebra” a term for thinking outside the box for a possible diagnosis. That takes time and often, more than one office visit. Specialists are not immune from this situation. The reliance on expensive and often unnecessary tests has impacted the “art” of medicine. Clinicians rely more and more on technology. Medical malpractice also factors into how medicine is practiced today.

    Patients Beware… screw-ups really do happen. This book is well worth reading initially, and certainly when dealing with a specific problem. Patients need to be their own advocates… aware that physicians do not always make the correct decision. No profession is completely error free. It is not possible to always have the correct answer. Medical mistakes can be deadly. Be sure to review the dangers of RX drugs. Read about over the counter medications that also have side effects and should be used carefully. These are just some of the important issues addressed in the book.

    Top Screwups Doctors Make And How To Avoid Them is well worth purchasing, reading and keeping. You will refer to it often.
