This easy to read, short book outlines the dynamics between patients and doctors. It explains in plain English what can go right and what can go wrong and WHY. Sometimes it is the doctor, sometimes the patient and sometimes a combination of both. There is even a glossary of medical terminology at the end of the book which translates medical terms to words you and I can understand! There is also a glossary of medical specialists so that when you are referred to Nephrologists you will know that that is a doctor who treats kidney diseases. Cartoon like pictures are used to illustrate points being made and I have to say it is refreshing! It is not a book about the current state of the health care industry—also refreshing!!
I really would suggest you pick up a copy of this book!!

From the back of the book:
I Love My Doctor, But…
…is a lighthearted attempt to deal with a potentially serious problem in medical care, the deteriorating relationship between patients and their physicians. As the healthcare system becomes more complicated, expensive, and stressful for both patients and their physicians, we may need, more than ever, to rely on that relationship to guide us through the system.
This book makes important observations and specific suggestions about how to improve patient care and allow physicians to practice in a more rewarding manner.
Dr. Gold does not pretend that solutions are easy or quick, but he does believe that improving patient-physician relationships is a good start.
