Sinopsis: We are all patients at some time. Is the medical industry giving us the best treatment possible, at the best price? We all know that it isn't. This new book shows what goes on behind the scenes of the current medical care and how it impacts the patient.
Dr. Reznik describes actual cases from his clinical practice showing the most common paths that lead to increased patient suffering. This book offers possible solutions for outpatient, inpatient, preventive, and end-of-life care settings.

Learn about:

  • The Medical Box and how it affects the care you receive
  • When to avoid risky and uncomfortable tests
  • Hazards of under-treatment, over-treatment, and mistreatment
  • How to make an informed medical decision in your best interests
  • Cancer and how to approach your treatment
  • Planning for quality of life during end-of-life issues

    Foreword by Colin P. Kopes-Kerr, MD, JD, MPH, Vice-Chairman of the Department of Family Medicine, and Program Director of the Family Medicine Residency Program, at University Hospital and SUNY Stony Brook School of Medicine, Stony Brook, NY.

    "The Secrets of Medical Decision Making should be read by everyone, because all of us are sometimes in need of medical care. It is an eye-opener, a call to arms and a guide."
    -Robert Rich, Ph.D., author of Cancer: A Personal Challenge

    "Dr. Reznik candidly exposes the conflicting interests inherent in contemporary medical practice. This empowering and insightful book is a must read for healthcare professionals and the patients they treat."
    -Beth Maureen Gray, R.N., B.S.

    "The Secrets of Medical Decision Making awakens the reader rather quickly with startling revelations about the lack of seriousness the health care industry has towards a society of wellness. If this book at least motivates its readers to become more involved in medical decision making when seeking treatment, it will have succeeded as a critically needed public service."
    - James W. Clifton, Ph.D., LCSW

    "As a Canadian and a health care provider this book frightens me. This book lays out what our country is headed for if we privatize health care in Canada. A must read for everyone working, or accessing, health care in North America and for anyone who has any doubts that we must take drastic action to preserve Universal Health Care in Canada."
    - Ian Landry, MA, MSW, RSW

  • From the Author: I introduce a concept of a Medical Box—forces that have a stronger hold on most physicians than the heavy chains of prison shackles. Here are, what I call, the four corners of the Medical Box:

  • Fear of litigation.
  • Financial and time pressure.
  • Guidelines of Health Care authorities.
  • The current Medical Model—disease oriented thinking.

    The text illustrates how each of these is played out in everyday patient care. A number of practical recommendations are offered. The most important theme, overarching the entire book, is empowering prospective patients to use their own common sense and trust their own judgment in making medical decisions about their medical care.

    A foreword to the book is written by Colin P. Kopes-Kerr, MD, JD, MPH, who is a Vice Chairman of the Department of Family Medicine, and Program Director of the Family Medicine Residency Program, at University Hospital and SUNY Stony Brook School of Medicine, Stony Brook, NY.

    A blurb is written by an Australian psychologist and an award winning author, Dr. Bob Rich.

    This book is of vital concern to everyone in the USA. It explains complex concepts in a language the average person will understand, and enables the reader to deal with the medical establishment in an intelligent way.
