Your Medical Mind

Tuesday, September 20, 2011

Dr. Jerome Groopman and Dr. Pamela Hartzband explain how we can cut through the confusion caused by the health-care system, the media, and gaps in our own reasoning to make our own best medical decisions. In Your Medical Mind: How to Decide What Is Right for You Dr. Groopman, a New Yorker writer and an oncologist who guides his patients through life-or-death decisions, and Dr. Hartzband, an endocrinologist and educator at Harvard Medical School, help chart a clear path through the sea of confusion created by doctors' recommendations, dissenting expert opinions, confusing statistics, conflicting media reports, the advice of friends, claims on the Internet, and a steady stream of drug company ads.
