We are all patients at some time. Is the medical industry giving us the best treatment possible, at the best price? We all know that it isnÂt. This new book shows what goes on behind the scenes of the current medical care and how it impacts the patient.
In THE SECRETS OF MEDICAL DECISION MAKING, Dr. Reznik describes actual cases from his clinical practice showing the most common paths that lead to increased patient suffering. This book offers possible solutions for outpatient, inpatient, preventive and end-of-life care settings.
Â the Medical Box and how it affects the care you receive
Â When to avoid risky and uncomfortable tests
Â Hazards of under-treatment, over-treatment, and mistreatment
Â How to make an informed medical decision in your best interests
Â Cancer and how to approach your treatment
Â Planning for quality of life during end-of-life issues
ÂThe Secrets of Medical Decision Making should be read by everyone, because all of us are sometimes in need of medical care. It is an eye-opener, a call to arms and a guide.Â
ÂRobert Rich, Ph.D., author of Cancer: A Personal Challenge
ÂDr. Reznik candidly exposes the conflicting interests inherent in contemporary medical practice. This empowering and insightful book is a must read for healthcare professionals and the patients they treat.Â
ÂBeth Maureen Gray, R.N., B.S.
ÂThe Secrets of Medical Decision Making awakens the reader rather quickly with startling revelations about the lack of seriousness the health care industry has towards a society of wellness. If this book at least motivates its readers to become more involved in medical decision making when seeking treatment, it will have succeeded as a critically needed public service.Â
