  1. Elephants in the Exam Room

    Elephants in the Exam Room

    $15.95

    A brisk, unapologetic overview of what’s really happening in today’s healthcare, and what to do about it.

    What are the real problems with healthcare in America today? As consumers are we asking the right questions? Are doctors able to address the issues freely and practice medicine as they were taught to do without repercussions? Minnesota-based doctor and writer Wayne Liebhard argues that in order to tackle the very serious and often irreparable damage within the “system” we need to face some hard, cold truths.

    Without apology, Liebhard has written a passionate and learned exposition that argues against some popular myths favored by the media, pundits, and professionals alike. Why does healthcare cost so much? Why do we pay so much for drugs? Why doesn’t my doctor have more time to spend with me? Why does it take so long to get an appointment with my primary care doctor—and why can’t she just treat me over the phone if needed? Why do insurance companies dictate my healthcare choices?

    In Elephants in the Exam Room you will find some surprising and often controversial answers—and solutions—from an experienced doctor who has been in the trenches of the healthcare crisis for years, both as a committed primary care practitioner and advocate for reform.

    “Dr. Liebhard debunks health care myths and demystifies the dangerous doublespeak of today’s health care debate. He points out that terms like ‘quality,’ ‘evidence-based medicine’ and ‘pay-for-performance’ are drawing physicians into an ethical quagmire that undermines the altruistic, patient-centered heart and soul of medical practice.”-Twila Brase, RN, PHN, President Citizens’ Council on Health Care

    “This book is a ‘must-read’ for anyone interested in returning control of their health care decisions to consumers and their physicians and away from government regulators and HMO executives. Health care costs can be significantly cut if consumers take responsibility for their lifestyle decisions as well as eliminating the middleman’s ‘piece of the action.’”-Thomas A. Stolee, M.D. Past President, Minnesota Medical Association Learn More Add to Wishlist
