This book is dedicated to those who seek the truth about total wellbeing and believe they are being slowly killed by their primary care physicians who continue to prescribe copious amounts of drugs for each and every malady. We are having a medical crisis. Do not wait until the morgue can not process the bodies fast enough to have doubt in the medical system. My goal is to inform the general public about the dangers of our fake health care system. Most people do not know that the medications their trusted doctor is prescribing them are killing them slowly! Our health care model is designed to confuse patients and minimize physician responsibility. This book will help you understand how your body works and how YOU can manage your own complete health care, not just specific medical conditions such as hypertension, high cholesterol, diabetes, cancer, heartburn, depression, insomnia, allergies etc. Instead of empowering patients to know more about their illnesses, doctors have instilled fear in them and prescribed unnecessary drugs, tests, and surgeries to justify large medical bills and make the drug companies obscenely wealthy. Doctors get paid well at our expense (body and wallet). Most of my patients have benefited greatly from my extensive education, deep-rooted culture, diverse background, and utmost honesty in teaching them about medicine the way it should be taught (basic and true), and it was through their inspiration that I wrote this book. In truth I feel I had no choice. No doctor would dare expose the awful truth regarding our broken medical system for fear their financial status will be compromised. My ultimate intention is to help every person maintain an independent mind and body until they breathe their last breath with dignity.

'With intelligence and keen insight based on extensive clinical, organisational and life experience, Drs Leanne Rowe and Michael Kidd deliver a powerful wake-up call to doctors. Writing with warmth and empathy but no holds barred, they ask us to 'get our own house in order' for the benefit of all involved. I believe that doctors throughout the world will appreciate their efforts and resonate with the quality and character of the work'. Professor David Bennett, The Children's Hospital at Westmead, Australia 'Every Doctor' is about thriving in medicine at a time of massive advances and changes in global health systems and medical services. A medical career requires personal fortitude, courage and humility, and this invaluable book shares practical solutions to inevitable challenges through the stories and wisdom of experienced doctors. The authors recognise that while individual resilience is essential, so is the ability to influence change by challenging negative medical cultures and 'out of touch' models of leadership. By collaborating, every doctor can: improve their physical and mental health to provide patient care of the highest standard; work with colleagues to create a healthier and happier medical culture; and lead and influence positive changes in their workplaces every day. The book is a must-read for doctors of all specialties at all stages of their careers wherever they practise in the world, because exemplary care of patients, peers, profession and self is a lifelong journey.

On average, a physician will interrupt a patient describing her symptoms within eighteen seconds. In that short time, many doctors decide on the likely diagnosis and best treatment. Often, decisions made this way are correct, but at crucial moments they can also be wrong—with catastrophic consequences. In this myth-shattering book, Jerome Groopman pinpoints the forces and thought processes behind the decisions doctors make. Groopman explores why doctors err and shows when and how they can—with our help—avoid snap judgments, embrace uncertainty, communicate effectively, and deploy other skills that can profoundly impact our health. This book is the first to describe in detail the warning signs of erroneous medical thinking and reveal how new technologies may actually hinder accurate diagnoses. How Doctors Think offers direct, intelligent questions patients can ask their doctors to help them get back on track. Groopman draws on a wealth of research, extensive interviews with some of the country’s best doctors, and his own experiences as a doctor and as a patient. He has learned many of the lessons in this book the hard way, from his own mistakes and from errors his doctors made in treating his own debilitating medical problems. How Doctors Think reveals a profound new view of twenty-first-century medical practice, giving doctors and patients the vital information they need to make better judgments together.
