Book Recommendation

One of the smallest books in Cypress Park Branch Library collection turns out to be one of the best books I have ever read in terms of its medical information and the  invaluable advice for patients and families by an expert in the field.

"Get inside Your doctor's Head" is written by Phillip K. Peterson, M,D.; a professor of medicine and an infectious disease specialist at the University of Minnesota Medical School. Within a mere 130 pages, Professor Peterson shares with readers the complex and complicated relationship of diagnosis, treatment, and communication among doctor, patient, and family members.

High-quality medical care is available, but not always readily available. The better informed person has a better chance to find quality doctors, hospitals, and treatment options. Readers of this book can learn so much from ordeals of several families with various medical conditions.The 10 common sense rules for making better decisions about medical care in this 10 micro-chapters book is indeed a jewel in the Cypress Park Branch Library collection.
