In this brave book, Dr. Montori channels George Orwell to expose the corruption — and absurdity — of health care. Filled with compassionate and clear-eyed observations, Why we Revolt will leave you fired up, no matter what side of the gurney you are on – Julia Belluz, senior health correspondent at Vox.com.
We revolt because our health – our very lives – matter. Why We Revolt does not serve as a blueprint but as an inspiration for patients and clinicians who are ready to pry open the idea of "healthcare" and make it about actual health and care. This book is a necessary catalyst for conversations that will revolutionize patient care – Kerri Sparling, diabetes patient advocate and creator of SixUntilMe.com.
This marvelously optimistic book is an urgent and cogent call to action that is firmly rooted in direct experience of the harms inflicted, not only on patients but also on those who try to care for them, by the industrialization of contemporary healthcare – Iona Heath, medical doctor and writer, former president of the Royal College of General Practitioners.
This profoundly humanistic examination of what has gone wrong in medicine has the diagnosis just right. This book is for everyone who will ever be a patient, for every health professional, and for every administrator and policy-maker – Gordon Guyatt, physician and researcher, father of evidence-based medicine.
Mayo Clinic first took root in farm fields near Rochester, Minn., in the late 1800s. It grew from the medical practice of a country doctor, William Worrall Mayo, and the partnership of his two sons, William J. and Charles H. Mayo—affectionately known as Dr. Will and Dr. Charlie.The brothers’ innovative ideas and tireless work in learning and creating new surgical techniques attracted international attention. Physicians from around the world came to watch the Mayo brothers perform surgery.The Mayo brothers invited other doctors to join them, forming teams of medical experts. Today, Mayo Clinic—one of the world’s oldest and largest multi-specialty group practices—comprises more than 45,000 physicians, scientists, nurses and other staff at its three locations in Rochester, Minn., Jacksonville, Fla., and Scottsdale, Ariz., and its regional community-based health care practices.
