A magnificent and incredibly useful handbook which I know I will be going back to time and time again. I found the anecdotes, the preparation tips and do’s and don'ts while in your appointment profoundly inspiring.

His book is well laid-out and it is full of great tips and advice. There is a resource section at the back of his book for spreadsheets and other tips that you can make great use of. The resource section alone is worth buying this book.

Have you ever left a doctor’s appointment feeling dissatisfied? I have, too.
If you have a chronic illness like me, you may feel like the doctor’s office is your second home.
You may have been diagnosed recently with a chronic illness and feel like you’re being passed around like a rag doll. Starting out on your journey as a lifelong patient can be daunting and worrisome.
Or maybe you’re a seasoned veteran who has noticed that the allocated time for your appointments never increases, but your health problems do? So, it seems impossible to get everything said and done.
I know how you feel. I’ve been where you are now. That’s why I wrote this book — to help you.
I’ve poured my knowledge and experiences of sitting on both sides of the desk into this book so that you can benefit, too. No one with a chronic illness should feel like they aren’t getting the care they deserve.
This book will arm you with the tools you need to Take Charge. It will give you an insight into what doctors (and other healthcare professionals) expect from you, and it will further your understanding of their expectations when it comes to managing your health.
This book also gives tips along the way to help you plan and execute your appointments in a productive way, so that you can optimize the short time you have with your doctor.
We all want more from our healthcare appointments, and there’s no reason why you can’t accomplish that.
To help you get more from your appointments I have created simple resources, which are discussed in this book and are available to download for FREE.
These are my gift to you. The can be downloaded directly from the Resources Page on this very site.
