This concise and accessible guide to modern healthcare explains the 10 rules of medical decision-making—and when to break them.
With so many medical tests and treatments to consider and so much information out there—some of it contradictory—it can be difficult to know what's right for you. In Get Inside Your Doctor's Head, Dr. Phillip K. Peterson explains the Ten Rules of Internal Medicine. Using real case examples, Peterson shows how following these commonsense rules will help you make better decisions about your medical care.
Get Inside Your Doctor's Head provides advice about when to seek treatment, when to get another opinion, and when to let time take its course. Using the Ten Rules can help you communicate more effectively with doctors and help you weigh their recommendations.
As with all rules, there are occasional exceptions—and when evidence suggests that you are an exception, the relevant rule should be broken. Follow the Ten Rules to make decisions in the increasingly complicated medical world when you need guidance about health matters for yourself and your loved ones.
