    The movie The Doctor is one of my favorite movies, so I was so glad to come across the book recently Great book, even though it is nothing like the movie After reading this, I feel that EVERY doctor in America should be required to read this book as they come into the medical profession Or we can only hope that many of them do become patients and REALLY see their illness through a patients eyes like Dr Rosenbaum did, and come away the better doctor for it I was sad to find out that we just lost this wonderful doctor earlier this year.

    The movie is better, great book nevertheless Anyone in pursuing in the medical field should deff read it.

    This is the story that inspired the William Hurt movie The Doctor Neither stands out in my memory as something extraordinary, but both convey the idea effectively enough A competent doctor begins developing mysterious symptoms The colleague he consults fails to diagnose his problem correctly, and it gets worse Much later, another physician finally identifies the problem and it s urgent , but is so cold and disrespectful that he cannot bear to be a patient And here s the point despite his fear and dismay at being on the other side of the bed, he slowly recognizes that this is the kind of doctor he has been throughout his career He had never considered what the experience of coming to see him was like for people who needed help He comes to this humbling realization late in life, but I respect him for reaching it at last and for trying to make amends.

  4. says:

    Should be required reading for anyone who wants to practise medicine Written by a doctor s experience of being a patient.

  5. says:

    I read this book a long time ago and still reread it from time to time The concept of medical professional exploring his profession from the point of view of the patient is interesting and always relevant, no matter when the book was written.

  6. says:

    Without drilling the concept into his audience, Dr Rosenbaum succinctly paints a picture of the indignities he suffers as a patient while describing the practicalities of things that he never thought twice about while practicing as a physician With pearls typical of a teaching physician , mix of hubris and humbleness, and anecdotes of times he was right and times he was wrong, Dr Rosenbaum has written a book from which many may benefit from his experience Similar yet not the same Wit with Emma Thompson, Dr Alexander Eben s Proof of Heaven Ultimately, there are so many lessons to learn from patients, even when we think we ve reached the end of our scientific ropes during their workup I thought I was going to donate this book, as I have been many lately, but will now be keeping it.

    The premise was good but he discussed a lot of medical statistics, that I would presume have changed in the almost 30 years it has been since this was published He also talks about what it s really like to be a patientBut still received a lot of special privileges and his real biggest complaints seemed to be waiting as much as a half hour one time, and 5 or 10 minutes on other occasions, and having to fill out paperwork Maybe this was the biggest issue when this was written, but I have waited 9 months for a specialist to get an appointment, and regularly wait 2 3 hours, or for certain specialist appointments, from my appointment time He wouldn t know what to do if he had to deal with the medical field now as a patient I like the way the movie was done to show of the difficulties a patient deals with Having seen the movie first, the book was a bit disappointing.

  8. says:

    A refreshingly honest look at illness and healthcare through the eyes of a doctor diagnosed with cancer

  9. says:

    A reflective piece that humbles the soul and reminds us all that doctors are people too

  10. says:

    Mostly enjoyable because the MD is from Portland From the 80 s, an MD is diagnosed with cancer and learns that the patient s view is different than the MD s Nothing very stunning and kinda hard to believe that it took him this long to learn to see things from the patient s views But, easy to read and I kept on because it was set in Portland and I like reading medical stories.
