Sometimes you should not trust your doctor, who may be too busy to give you the attention you actually need, may not be up to date in medical information or may have a conflict of interest in caring for you.
San Marino, California (PRWEB) October 18, 2012
With current discussions about changes to the U.S. healthcare system, insurance and what Americans need from their healthcare providers, it is easy for the average patient to get confused. One of America’s most respected doctors, Dr. Cary Presant is stepping in to make sure every American is getting the best healthcare possible with his book “Surviving American Medicine: How to Get the Right Doctor, Right Hospital and Right Treatment with Today’s Health Care.”
Dr. Presant, a national expert in healthcare and practicing M.D., gives patients everything they need to know to be a smart consumer and take control of their own medical care.
“Sometimes you should not trust your doctor, who may be too busy to give you the attention you actually need, may not be up to date in medical information or may have a conflict of interest in caring for you,” Dr. Presant says.
“Surviving American Medicine” covers everything a patient needs to know from finding the right health care plan to evaluating your physician, getting a second opinion and being a good patient. Dr. Presant also discusses insurance, financing medical care and covers each type of health insurance and how it benefits patients.
As Fran Drescher, author of the book’s foreword says, “[Dr. Presant’s] goal of turning patients into medical consumers is of paramount importance in the 21st century.”
