Matters of Life and Death: Risks Versus Benefits of Medical Care
MATTERS OF LIFE AND DEATH is a thoughtful, well-reasoned explanation of the practice of medicine. It is not a how-to book. But it will help you make sensible decisions about medicine and medical care.
Dr. Robin treats subjects such as getting the most from your doctor...seeing how diagnostic and therapeutic measures are introduced and perpetuated...learning why doctors overtest and overtreat...discovering what risks are inherent in every medical encounter...from a simple blood test to a major operation...and finding out how to increase the benefits and decrease the risks of modern medicine for yourself and your family.
