Buddha in the Waiting Room: Simple Truths about Health, Illness, and Healing

Front Cover
Council Oak Books, 2004 - Health & Fitness - 144 pages
Buddha in the Waiting Room transcends the traditional boundaries of modern medical practice by taking some of the divinity out of the medical profession and empowering the person on the other side of the stethoscope. Dr. Paul Brenner draws on his perspective of more than 40 years in the medical profession to deliver a poignant and timely redefinition of health as a living process. This is a humorous and touching account of a logic-driven realist who is reluctantly transformed by the wisdom he finds in an unexpected place: the hearts and minds of those he has been entrusted to heal.
