A Doctor's Story uses the highly personalized narrative of one woman's educational and professional path to highlight shocking flaws in our profit driven medical delivery system. Employing moving anecdotes to illustrate glaring deficiencies in health care policy and delivery, and in medical training, the book takes a refreshing and distinct approach to a topic on the mind of virtually every American. Can we reshape our expensive, inefficient and inhumane health care system to meet the needs of all? The book is structured as an autobiography, so the discussion of policy is laced with humor, compassion, sarcasm and anger. It is, as the title states, a story, not a scientific study or research project. The book's premise is that real experiences of real people can speak volumes, and that one person can effect change.
