This is a blog by a former CEO of a large Boston hospital to share thoughts about hospitals, medicine, and health care issues.
I just finished this book. I trained in medicine in the 70's, and it is clear to me that Dr's are no longer trained to arrive at a diagnosis in the way that he describes as ideal. His experience with his hand problem was especially interesting. It even spoke to the point that Dr's no longer even give the extra courtesy to other M.D.'s that used to be par for the course. As both a doctor and a patient, I find the current state of American doctoring very sad. Especially sad that he has to write a book telling patients how to HELP their doctors think!!
It is a pretty picture.I believe it is a picture of pampas grass, a foreign weed that is a heavy duty threat in competition with native flora on the California coast. I have read that it has been spread not only by wind, but by people happily holding strands of it out the car window, like streamers, as they drive along California's Highway 1.
Yay! It's a great book.
