The authors have produced a quick and easy guide to asking intelligent and potentially informative questions when a diagnosis has been rendered by a physician. The book is concise and easy to generalize from the home to the physician's office so that adequate information can be obtained with the intention of making informed decisions about one's healthcare.
The book literally covers medical conditions from A-Z (omitting Q, X,Y & Z). It provides a brief description of a particular disorder and then suggests five questions which should be asked during the initial consultation related to the particular diagnosis. Additional questions are suggested should the initial questions not provide information required by the patient.
In an age in which internet information abounds and physician time is a precious commodity, this book should ease the patient into a time-limited yet productive use of the short face-to-face, patient-doctor consultation.
