Don’t Go to the Doctor Without Me!

Damiano de Sano Iocovozzi

Don’t Go to the Doctor Without Me is your personal road map through the health care maze from wellness exams to chronic care management and teaches you how to become your own health care advocate. Uninsured or under insured, this book includes important tips on how to get low cost or free services while still receiving the best possible care.

Don’t Go to the Doctor Without Me is brief, to the point and the only book to date to focus on the many aspects of a doctor-patient relationship. The author draws from his 23 years of experience as a nurse and offers all the questions patients should ask during every encounter—wellness exams, episodic illness, chronic illness—and completes the provider-patient partnership. Take control of your medical care and live a healthy life.
