Patients Health Care Survival Guide
The Patients Health Care Survival Guide is a true story. It is a step by step diary of what happened to a healthy psychotherapist when she suddenly became ill and arrived at the emergency room of her managed care facility. Needing immediate medical attention, expecting to be reassured and to get her questions answered, she found herself trapped on a three trillion-dollar healthcare assembly line and abruptly sent home without treatment to await a further attack. Tied to a Primary Caregiver with a caseload of 2,000 patients and no interest or time to listen to her concerns, she was misdiagnosed, tested, retested, and assigned to impersonal salaried medical personnel she had never met who were unable to give her a definitive diagnosis. If she were to survive, she realized she must do something to save her own life. Recognizing that since she had never been a managed care patient, knew someone who was or who worked in the medical field, there was no way for the uninitiated to have any idea how patients were being treated. It was time to tell the truth. Join Dr. Wright on her fantastic journey through the looking glass.
