President Obama’s Nominee for Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Dr. Donald Berwick, had very positive things to say about this new book:

“Active, informed patients and families can play a key role in protecting and improving the safety and quality of their own health care.  To do this well, they need coaches and good ideas about how to get involved.  This book is full of useful tips to help them speak up with confidence and become the empowered participants that they can and should be.”

About the Book

Every minute of every day, in thousands of doctor’s offices across the country, there is information people should know about their medical condition that is not being discussed.  People often forget key questions or sometimes don’t even know the right questions to ask. Top 5 Questions to Ask Your Doctor alleviates that problem for any patient. 

Categorized by medical condition, this invaluable reference guide is based on questions submitted and reviewed by hundreds of primary care doctors, specialists, nurses, medical students and patients.  If these simple questions are asked at the time of a medical visit, patients will walk away knowing more and being more confident about their health.
