The realities of American health care, 2009:

  • Less personal medical attention due to cost-cutting and regulation
  • A 40 percent national misdiagnosis rate, per recent surveys
  • A critical need for people to take responsibility for their own care

Targeting these issues, author Lisa Hall—whose debilitating condition took nearly ten years to properly diagnose—offers a wide variety of practical resources to empower patients. Hall’s experience is buttressed by the expertise of internal-medicine doctor Ronald Wyatt, a fellow of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement.

Readers will find valuable guidance on how to

  • find the right kind of doctor, check physician credentials, and increase benefits of office visits
  • maximize Internet research
  • navigate medical insurance, Medicare, workers’ compensation, and Social Security disability
  • reduce vulnerability to hospital mistakes
  • organize medical records

The author encourages readers to move forward step by step—and to look back and see God’s plan taking shape through the difficulties.
