"Dr. Berczeller, a practicing internist for over three decades, addresses the complex issues that beset both patients and doctors. He looks at areas like terminal illness, doctors' bills, "pulling the plug," living wills, sexual attraction between doctor and patient, and malpractice from a physician's point of view, and reveals some of the complex feelings that doctors have about their patients. Dr. Berczeller illustrates his points with true stories from his thirty years of practicing medicine, relating anecdotes about his own patients and colleagues that are amusing, touching, or provocative - but always human. He also gives hints on how to identify a "problem doctor," and what to look for in a good doctor." "In Doctors and Patients, an honest and open discussion of the strengths and failings of the doctor/patient relationship, Dr. Berczeller opens up a dialogue that may help to heal the rift between these two groups."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
