New Book Your Doctors' Manners Matters: Better Health through Civility in the Doctor's Office and in the Hospital Released

Book Addresses What Patients Should Expect From Doctors In Terms of Service, Manners and Compassion
    ATLANTA, GA, March 23, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Your Doctors' Manners Matters: Better Health through Civility in the Doctor's Office and in the Hospital (ISBN 978 -1-61005-447-8, BookLogix, 2014) by Dr. Barry Silverman and Dr. Saul Adler has been released. The book is a short and easy primer addressing what a patient should expect from their doctors in terms of service, respect, and human compassion. It also addresses what a patient should expect from hospitals in terms of behavior. The authors draw upon their extensive experience in the medical field. Using examples from their own practices and from those of their colleagues to illustrate their points, Your Doctors' Manners Matters: Better Health through Civility in the Doctor's Office and in the Hospital allows the patient to identify physicians and other medical professionals who practice medicine with compassion, empathy, and respect for the dignity of their patients.

"Dr. Adler and I have been physicians since the late 1960s. Lately we have heard patients discussing how displeased they are with their doctor's manners and lack of empathy, " said Dr. Barry Silverman, co-author of Your Doctors' Manners Matters: Better Health through Civility in the Doctor's Office and in the Hospital. "In today's world, patients put a great emphasis on the manners their doctors and other medical professionals display. This book not only addresses what a patient should expect in terms of manners from their doctors but also what patients can do if they are not satisfied."

Unlike other professions and industries that put an emphasis on customer service, the medical profession doesn't. A visit to a doctor who lacks civility and social graces will result in an unsuccessful medical outcome. . For example, if doctors don't spend time listening to their patients and interacting with them, patients may be less likely to follow the doctors' advice. Despite the growing popularity of careers in the medical and health care industry, medical schools don't offer courses in professional and social behavior. By educating patients on what to expect from the most effective and caring doctors, patients can influence their doctor's manners.

"We provide information in the book that arms the patient on what type of manners they should reasonably expect from their doctors and other medical professionals," said Dr. Saul Adler, co-author of Your Doctors' Manners Matters: Better Health through Civility in the Doctor's Office and in the Hospital. "If the doctor treats patients with compassion, understanding, and sympathy it reflects on their commitment to their profession. It is very disturbing for a sick patient, or a patient in pain and very vulnerable to visit the doctor and believe they have not been heard and treated well."

Your Doctors' Manners Matters: Better Health through Civility in the Doctor's Office and in the Hospital is excellent for anyone seeking a doctor. Through the use of stories and examples, the book instructs patients on what to expect from a doctor and provides information on how to evaluate doctors' ability and commitment to their patients' health.
