Putting the CARE Back in Health Care

This book could not be more timely, from my point of view. It is a perfect companion to my Myth Busters book. Where my book looks at the failure of evolving public policy in health care from the 20,000-foot level, this book looks at the same phenomena from the ground level - the impact on patients and especially on physicians.

Has the Canary Died?

I highly recommend this new book by Lee Beecher, MD and David Racer, MLitt. It is, quite literally, about the care of those who suffer by those who suffer to care. So, Passion for Patients, by Alethos Press, St Paul, MN, 2017, is a very appropriate title and worthy of one's attention.

A Story Worth Reading

Whenever I read a book review, I ask myself: What is the book about? Is it worth its price? What are the biases of its reviewer?

This book is the story of the 40-year career of Dr. Lee Beecher, a clinical psychiatrist. It is the story of how managed care and ObamaCare has affected Dr. Beecher's practice and how it has altered and disrupted the practices of other physicians.
