I bought their recently published guide to health care abroad. I was able to see how bad Peddicord's work is after buying and beginning to peruse this book from Josef Woodman.
With only one exception, Peddicord's "experts" did not write me back when I wrote to inquire about a procedure that I need. That one exception--a purported expert in Arizona--did not have any referrals for the surgery that I require in Mexico, which is the geographic area that he specializes in. Still, he wanted all of my medical records before he would even produce any doctors for me to consider. I knew immediately when I turned to the section on the surgery that I now seek and what is and is not available in Mexico as described in this book by Woodson how bogus the Peddicord "expert" is. Woodson's book told me right up front who in Mexico can do what I need and who can't. Plus Woodson's book covers many other geographic areas.
Peddicord, moreover, does not tell the whole story about foreign hospitals and their accreditation or lack thereof. Nor does she write about planning ahead as thoroughly as does Woodson. His book covers many more subjects as well, like traveling solo or not.
In short, Woodman's book covers everything and then some.
I would suggest that you read this book even if you are not going abroad, as am I, for much needed medical care.
This book is a God Send. You will be well placed to vet out doctors and procedures in the USA with this book. It is that thorough. It will help you get the best bang for your buck even if you don't go overseas to get good medicine.
Hat's off to Mr. Woodman for a lot of hard work, all of it meticulously crafted with great care. This book is also well written.
