Top Customer Reviews
His book is well laid-out and it is full of great tips and advice. There is a resource section at the back of his book for spreadsheets and other tips that you can make great use of. The resource section alone is worth buying this book.
I personally prefer to use a paid phone app now to track my appointments, medications, pain levels and other things, but prior to paying for this app, my health resource spreadsheets were very similar to what Ricky White has provided, and I promise you, they will be a wealth of information for your medical team <u>and</u> FOR YOU.
You will start to see patterns emerging with your health if you keep up with his resources for tracking what happens with your appointments and with your health.
The only reason I moved to a paid app is because I live in Taiwan and Taiwan has a universal health care system that is digitalized, which means my whole medical team (This includes my dentist!) can see prior appointments, doctor's notes, and they can add my app notes and recordings right into their database. (Cool, huh?)
I hope other countries follow suit with this system, but honestly, if you aren't using a phone app for the reason I mentioned above, you can't do any better than the resources Ricky has provided. I have my doctors print out a copy of all my tests and I file my notes the same way that Ricky suggests in his book. This means I am always well prepared and everything is in chronological order, which makes it easy for new doctors to understand.
Ricky's resources are fantastic and you will be amazed at what you learn from your own notes after you've been tracking your appointments for even a few months.
Another benefit to using Ricky's tips and resources is that these resources will provide you with a trail of paperwork that may assist you in the future should you need it, especially if you plan on filing for disability at some point. (You can never have enough paperwork and notes on record when it comes to this.)
When you add Ricky's experience as a nurse to his own story about having a chronic condition (Ankylosing Spondylitis), you really are seeing both sides of the story here, and that is why this book is so important. Ricky's writing is solid and easy to understand, so you don't need to worry about long and wordy medical passages that take time to decipher.
Buy this book. Read it. Use Ricky White's resources. You will not regret it.
5 stars, Mr. White. Bravo!
