Great Book! Provides techniques to talk to different kinds of patients. April 14 2011
By MRK - Published on
Format: Paperback
It is much easier to learn the Krebs cycle than learning how to talk to patients.

This book is a great reference. It helps you structure your approach to different kinds of patient. From the ones, you think, are "great and compliant" patients but you cannot seem to get his/her blood pressure or blood sugars under control; to the ones you want to run away from whenever you see them on your schedule.
The book provides core principles on the the usual clinical scenarios, from obtaining a good history & physical, to providing a diagnosis, to discussing treatment options and following up on the treatment plans.

It also provides very difficult clinical scenarios, like dealing with an angry patient or giving a bad diagnosis, and even giving bad news to a family member.

You can easily master Bates' ;-) Learning how to understand and approach people in real life, clinical situations is not easy. The book provides basic knowledge, concrete tools/techniques to communicate with patients effectively.

Decent, but a bit Obvious... Jan. 13 2011
By Samwise - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I think this book was decent, but in my opinion it had a very "staged"/fake feel to some of the physician/patient dialogues/examples. Also, although it was minimul, there were definate disagreements with Bates'. In my opinion, you should just get Bates. But this is again a decent book for students.

Excellent! Jan. 9 2011

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A couple hours after ordering the book off of amazon I got an email from the seller informing me that he got the order and that he would put it in the mail by the next day. I got it very quickly and it was in the condition that was listed. Absolutely no complaints!
