The American Medical Association reports that 90 million Americans have trouble understanding medical information. It is NOT the patients'fault, in my opinion. The current system of healthcare in the United States no longer permits our country's physicians to spend quality educational time with their patients. Help is here! Health-Wise House Callsis designed for the entire family and includes chapters on topics such as ear infections, asthma, high blood pressure, diabetes, migraine headaches, cancer prevention, depression, and losing weight. My goal is for you, the reader, to gain a much greater understanding of 10 of the most common medical topics that are most likely to affect each and every member of your family. Each chapter is written with as little qdoctor-speakq as possible. Medical language and terminology are easily explained in a way that you WILL understand, no matter what your occupational or educational background. The things you will learn in this book will improve your health, improve the health of your family members, and make all of your future visits to the doctor less intimidating, more enjoyable, and vastly more productive!
