Author Lawrence Gold, M.D.about this book: I Love My Doctor, my first non-fiction book.

It's based on an idea that I've been considering for years, how to remedy the problems in the relationship between patients and their physicians.

An elicitation of these problems and possible remedies would be unappealing, so I've presented this material in a lighthearted and humorous way. In addition, I've provided two glossaries, one on medical terminology, and the other on medical specialists.

From a 5 star review: The above said, Dr. Larry Gold's book is a humorous, but informed take, on the nitty gritty of the doctor--patient relationship, based on his extensive experience in the medical field, which has spanned decades of working as a physician both in private office and in hospital-based practice, as well as of serving as chief of a large department of internal medicine and family practice. Regarding good communication as the cornerstone of medicine, Dr. Gold explores the essence of such through numerous scenarios, fictional and not, in a way that brings his message alive in a way that is totally apposite to his subject. In a thoroughly humane and cogent way, he explores topics like how to handle tough, but essential questions and questioning; issues of medical malpractice; matching patient and physician; medical problems that physicians dislike (but which they, nevertheless, have to deal with); and finding a physician. His text is enlivened with a number of cartoons by Theresa Mccracken that help to bring the message home, and which make what he has to say all the more memorable.

While the book is available in print and Kindle format, I'd recommend the print version since it has reference material.
