clarity, confidence, and uncertainty in medicine

Almost 20 billion times each year, a person walks into a doctor's office.
The person becomes a patient.

Everyone becomes this patient at some point.
How will you talk to your physicians?

What will you tell them?
What will they tell you in return?

They can't tell you what they don't know.
They can tell you when they don't know.

Will they?

What Doctors Cannot Tell You explores the uncertainty that pervades medicine. It breaks the code of silence within which too many physician-patient conversations take place. The patients' stories in its pages will empower you to ask questions of your physicians, with a firm belief that healing and hope begin from honesty in those critical conversations.
