Honestly as a senior I am hesitant to go to a doctor unless necessary for many of the reason stated in the book.
Notably that medical school teachs them that being a doctor is a BUSINESS not healing as thought. I knew about the billing situation doctor's face.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I will go into any future doctor's appt with my eyes wide open!
Thank you for taking the time to share such a personal journey with us, it was a very enjoyabe read and I applaud you for your courage to speak up!
