When Doctors Become Patients

A new book talks about what happens when doctors navigate the medical system as patients.
Published: February 8, 2008
From the article:
"When doctors get sick, they discover fissures in the health system that they didn’t know existed. They learn that seemingly small annoyances they never paid attention to as doctors — like long waiting times or a broken television in a hospital room — really are a big deal when you are the patient. Even doctors who thought of themselves as compassionate recognize they can do better once they experience life as a patient."
