I recommend this book for healthcare workers who are looking to promote partnerships between health professional and patients. The book offers real stories describing the way in which healthcare is experienced by both patients and providers. The book is also autobiographical, giving insight into the life of a retired physician who has given careful thought to issues of faith and health.
