My patients are better off because of this book. 23 Jun. 2009
By Josh Uy - Published on
Format: Paperback
While a lot of things have shaped the way I practice medicine including mentors in medical school and residency, there are less than 5 books/articles I have read or lectures I have heard that I actively and intentionally try to recall to mind as I see each patient (and family member) through the day and this is one of them. I consider the principles in this book to be so vital to my understanding of patients and building relationships that I find myself using it with challenging patients and situations. It has made me feel much more comfortable with the "difficult patient" and made me realize that what made certain situations difficult is that I lacked tools which I now have. Using these tools has created many "a ha" moments when I suddenly had clear insight into the person sitting in front of me which allowed me to be much more effective in what I was trying to do, allow the patient to be heard and allowed me to enjoy even difficult interactions. Patients desperately want their doctors to listen, this book teaches us how.
