Product description

How Doctors Think is a window into the mind of the physician and an insightful examination of the all-important relationship between doctors and their patients. In this myth-shattering work, Jerome Groopman explores the forces and thought processes behind the decisions doctors make. He pinpints why doctors succeed and why they err. Most important, Groopman shows when and how doctors can -- with our help -- avoid snap judgments, embrace uncertainty, communicate effectively, and deploy other skills that can profoundly impact our health.

Customer reviews

By Ben Aston 27 Jan 2014 4

I'm an Australian doctor, so some of what Groopman says doesn't apply to our system. There were one or two comments which really jarred with me, and suggested perhaps that Groopman totally failed to understand the concept of evidence based medicine.

Overall however, the book raises some very interesting points and is a good read.

Review quote

" Splendid and courageous… Groopman lifts the veil on the most taboo topic… the pervasive nature of misdiagnosis." -- Ron Chernow, author of ALEXANDER HAMILTON, TITAN, and THE HOUSE OF MORGAN
