"Taking Charge of Your Own Health" is for everyone. Lisa Hall encourages readers to take responsibility for their own health. She saw many doctors and had as many misdiagnoses. Thirty seven doctors later, she was correctly diagnosed. Using her experience, Lisa Hall offers readers invaluable information on many aspects of medicine, including treatment and insurance. Despite Hall’s nightmarish experience, she offers a balanced look at what doctors face each day.

Too often, doctors label women as neurotic, hypochondriacs. After dealing with excruciating back pain and a doctor that would not listen, I took responsibility for my own health. I insisted on an MRI. A tumor was found growing in my spine. I sought expert advice. God sent me to a wonderful doctor, Mitch Campbell. However, if I had not become my own advocate, perhaps I would not be walking today.

MS Hall offers additional resources and references to further assist the reader; this is a must read.
