New Paltz, N.Y. (PRWEB) October 02, 2014
Author, Dr. Randolph R. Estwick’s perception of the health care dilemma was motivated by his daily experience with his wife who has suffered from the sudden onset of a stroke. This experience has brought him face-to-face with occurrences and practices which were alien to him as a physician and consultant in physical medicine and rehabilitation.
“The Health Care Dilemma, An Inside View” (published by Xlibris) shares with readers, his perceptions of some of the problems and the dilemma in the delivery of health care, which many experience and accept as a way of life. Senior care, skilled nursing facilities, independent living facilities, and the role of physical medicine and rehabilitation are all discussed at some length in this book. Issues and concerns obliquely related to health care were also discussed; these include long-term insurance coverage, the immigrants’ contributions to health care, and the most precious years of one’s life, “the golden years.” Finally, an overview of the dilemma in health care was given in the context of a physician.
Estwick found himself in a very unique position of being “two persons in one,” the experienced physician on one side of the coin and the spouse of the victim of a major medical event—a stroke—on the other side. His task as author of this book is to present perspectives and occurrences which he could not envisage as a physician.
'The Health Care Dilemma’ is an eye-opener, a book easy to read and understand. It touches on many of the problems faced by readers which are affordability in the delivery of genuine health care.
