Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I found Dan Sulmasy's book "just what the doctor ordered!" He hit the target right on the mark in providing practical spiritual ways to become and sustain ourselves as truly caring physicians and health care providers. Very timely in this age of "managed cost" reimbursement, increasing legal, patient, and life demands on the physician / caregiver. We are currently using Dan's book as a discussion guide for our monthly spiritual support group for physicians who come from every specialty!

Format: Paperback
This book was wonderful! A must for medical students, law students and both lawyers/doctors. Puts the reality of the true duty of a "professional" into perspective. Truly a delight. Unquestionably a five star book. Dr. Sulmasy catches the essence of what is missing in the current debate on the role of the health care professional.

This is a wonderful book -- written with compassion, insight, and grace. Every physician and other health care professional could benefit from reading this -- and their patients, in turn, will benefit as well.

8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Gail K Kroll on February 23, 2005
Format: Paperback
I think all three of the previous reviews for this book have merit. However, I read this book in 1997 when it came out and have been giving it to every nurse, minister, psychologist, psychiatrist, and physician with whom I come into contact professionally. The aspect of the patients/parishioners not knowing the results of medical tests or what will God think of the outcome of his/her health results and how those will bring reexaminging of his own life is revealed in this book. EXCELLENT!! I loved this book as an avid patient, client, friend, and author.

Format: Paperback
A wonderfully refreshing book. In our modern world, where the doctor- patient relationship has deviated from the traditional relationship of trust and compassion, where gratitude has been replaced by unrealistic expactations and demands, Dr Sumasy manages to address these issues that haunt every physician and indicate the way of maintaining the original vocation in spite of all the sad developments in this profession. This is a dynamic and full of positivity inspirational read, that can revive and show the way to healing for the wounded physician of today's world.
