Myrtle Potter, one of the nation's foremost healthcare leaders, almost died in the healthcare system that she had spent 25 years of her life serving. "I believe that firing my doctor at a critical time in my health crisis saved my life," said Potter. Now Potter shares her incredible story and the lifesaving lessons she learned in her free live webinar, "5 Prescriptions You Won't Find in Your Doctor's Bag: When and How to Fire Your Doctor" on Thursday, November 10, 2011, from 12:30pm-1:30pm EST.

With the endless confusion over how to find reliable care, access to medications, and the best doctor, Myrtle Potter, Your Trusted Voice in Healthcare, is encouraging everyone to "take a good hard look at your relationship with your doctor." Her expert advice, suggestions, and answers to live questions will be featured in a webinar, "5 Prescriptions You Won't Find in Your Doctor's Bag: When and How to Fire Your Doctor" on Thursday, November 10, 2011, from 12:30pm-1:30pm EST.

Potter is a best-selling author and one of America’s foremost and most accomplished healthcare leaders and experts. She has dedicated three decades to serving the healthcare needs of millions of consumers through her leadership of some of America’s most successful global healthcare companies. She was a vice president at Merck, president at Bristol-Myers Squibb, and president and chief operating officer at Genentech, the biotechnology powerhouse.

In 2005, all of that came to an abrupt, shocking halt. Potter suffered a tragic near-death experience in the healthcare system. After recovering and reflecting, she was inspired to embark on a journey to combine her vast experience as healthcare expert, patient, and caregiver to champion the needs of individuals struggling to navigate the U.S. healthcare system.

In this webinar, Potter will offer simple steps to evaluate the patient-doctor relationship, and how to know when it is time to tell your doctor, "You're fired." Potter wants listeners to become the "Boss" of their healthcare and to first ask, "Am I a good boss?" Listeners will learn the correct way to part with 'Dr. Wrong' and how to find 'Dr. Right.' Potter will take live questions from listeners.

Putting up with poor service from doctors has consequences to America's health and pocketbooks. The American Medical Association estimates that billions of dollars are squandered each year nationwide on unsatisfactory care. With nearly 50 million Americans uninsured, making smart choices in healthcare has never been so important.
