Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Records can disclose information to you that might not otherwise be forthcoming. Consider all written information from health care practitioners a record, even bills. For instance, a woman went into a hospital for a biopsy, and the doctor told her the results were negative. She was relieved until the bill arrived. Besides the various charges for the biopsy, the bill stated that tissue from the biopsy was found to be malignant. Luckily, the woman read her bill carefully. She contacted her doctor and he checked the results; indeed, the bill was right and he was wrong.

Review:

The medical establishment has actively worked to create a helpless and apologetic feeling in healthcare consumers. We end up feeling that we are too ignorant to understand our medical situations, and that we would be rude and ungrateful if we asked questions or expressed dissatisfaction. Your Medical Rights serves to remind us that healthcare professionals are people we hire to do a job for us; if we are not satisfied with a particular doctor, we owe it to ourselves to find another one. The authors discuss consumer skills like researching your doctor's credentials, getting your medical records, evaluating your hospital bill and finding out if a treatment is really needed. They also outline what you can do if you feel that your medical rights have been violated. This book is a real eye-opener for those of us who are easily cowed by over-confident doctors, and it can help us get the best health care possible. -- From The WomanSource Catalog & Review: Tools for Connecting the Community for Women; review by FGP
