THE PREFACE OF THE BOOK: The world we live in has the best doctors and the most advanced medical system that our civilization has ever known.
Yet 100,000 patients die and nine million suffer injury every year. If medical mistakes were a disease, it would be the sixth leading cause of deaths in America.
In this extraordinary age of medical miracles, patients continue to sink into the quicksand of “going to the hospital.” Who has not heard about someone who checked into a facility for “normal” surgery … leading to their death?
A cartoon makes a joke out of it. It shows a doctor in a laboratory, surrounded by white lab rats. “We don’t need better medicine,” he announces to his colleagues, “we need stronger lab rats.”
As you read Warrior Patient you become one of the nine million who suffer injury every year. You take an extraordinary, often amusing journey into the quicksand of modern medicine. In the midst of a long list of life-threatening illnesses, you learn to laugh and you learn how to become a much stronger lab rat, a “Warrior Patient.”
You take advantage of America’s fabulous medical system. You are not taken advantage of by that system.
The story unfolds with humor and anecdotes that capture characters, times and places, from good doctors to bad ones, from childhood to old age, from Africa to Sweden. In the end, you fully recover. You live again. You have a life. Enjoy the trip.
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
I am glad Temple has given me a good roadmap to follow in my dealings with my medical team – and also has given me the courage to question the “Experts” because all of them seem to have a very high regard for their own ability – it’s Ego really – and don’t like their diagnosis to be examined by the patient.
I think Mr. Williams highly personal and affecting story is a landmark accomplishment in helping to bridge what is currently and impenetrable gap between healthcare providers and their patients. Mr. Williams book should be required reading for any individual who is facing a serious medical diagnosis in today’s healthcare world, an essential tool in facilitating a successful outcome to any medical challenge.
Everyone should read this cautionary tale, told with irony, intelligence and wit! A scathing commentary on the decline of American healthcare because of unwieldy insurance company regulations and greed. But most importantly, it is a guide for the ‘ordinary’ person on how to take charge of one’s one’s health destiny.
Warrior Patient is the partly scary – and educational! – story of one patient; part biography and part love story. Everyone should read it to prepare or understand our medical system. Do it before you need the common sense it brings.
Temple Williams’ book is a true-life mystery story. I was hooked from the start. I had to find out what happened during this journey and how it all turned out. I’d like to read other books like this one. This type of book deserves its own specific genre. Great book!
