When Doctors Don't Listen
How to Avoid Misdiagnoses and Unnecessary Tests
"Leana Wen and Josh Kosowsky have written an authoritative guide to answer a seemingly simple question: How should you talk to your doctor?
Through fascinating examples taken from their own clinical experiences, they show how doctors' training fails to teach real listening skills. But Drs. Wen and Kosowsky don't stop there: They also also offer up constructive and practical advice that just might save your life. Hopefully many of my own colleagues in medicine will also learn the lessons described in this terrific book."
