Calling the Shots

Are you battling an illness? Are you swept away in the current of a daunting healthcare system?

You may be forced to deal with medical procedures, billing issues, insurance companies – and, tragically, doctors who are not concerned with your welfare.

You may feel demoralized and powerless.

I know I did.

But not for long.

Calling the Shots in Your Medical Care coaches you to be proactive in your health care and get what you need from an often-inadequate system.

Calling the Shots is a call to action.

This short book helps you take a stand for yourself and empowers you to:

  • •deal with difficult administrators and confusing bureaucracy.
  • •effectively talk to physicians, especially the difficult or ‘bully’ ones.
  • •assert your needs and speak up.
  • •command respect from doctors, nurses, and medical assistants.
  • •find the right physicians – for you.
  • •hire and fire doctors so you get the care you need.
  • •gather a great medical team to make sure your needs are met.

As a patient, I needed a book like this one to coach me through the healthcare system. Instead, I was overwhelmed with weighty, information-laden tomes that left me panicked and disempowered. I had no choice but to learn how to make the healthcare system work for me.

Being proactive angered some doctors and other healthcare professionals. But I had the best advocate in the world – myself. And I was able to win doctors to my side, becoming a partner of the medical system instead of a victim of it.

You can too.

It’s time to seize the reins of your own medical care.

It’s time to take action.

It’s time for you to call the shots.
