5.0 out of 5 stars A moving and invaluable book, June 30, 2009
This review is from: The Life You Save: Nine Steps to Finding the Best Medical Care—and Avoiding the Worst (Paperback)
With an engaging style and poignant stories, Patrick Malone explains simple steps one can take to obtain excellent medical care, and avoid the many pitfalls of our medical system. In addition to being a fine read, Malone's book is filled with invaluable practical recommendations, within reach of practically all readers. People can obtain their own medical records and test results, and those records often point to flaws in care, or at least point to issues that need to be probed. Everyone can make a list of their questions, and take them to their doctor's office on the next appointment. Everyone can work to insure that their own primary care physician is at least kept in the loop in the ordering of specialty care -- a step that can help avoid unnecessary, sometimes troubled tangents.

Malone brings to his book decades of experience as an attorney representing people who have suffered serious injury as the result of medical negligence and, previously, as a newspaper reporter dedicated to exposing achievements and failures of American medicine. His background shows in the readability, depth, and intelligence of The Life You Save: Nine Steps to Finding the Best Medical Care -- and Avoiding the Worst.
