Endorsements for SURVIVING YOUR DOCTORS Why the Medical System is Dangerous to Your Health and How to Get through it Alive

 

Dr. Klein's book hits the nail on the head. The lack of quality care and the danger in many of our hospitals is a timely issue as our nation considers health care reform. It's important that everyone take control of their own health care and protect themselves against careless practitioners. His examples and advice on taking more control of one's own health care will go a long way to creating a better and safer system.

Alfred DelBello

This passionate and smart book is by someone who both deeply understands how sick our health care system is and what the best remedies are to make it well. The state and country need more doctor-advocates like Richard Klein.

Endorsements for FROM ANECDOTE TO ANTIDOTE: 101 Medical Musings and Practical Prescriptions from a Humanitarian Healer

 

I’ve just completed reading a draft of your book and it wraps up all the good things you have done throughout your medical career. I recall during my days in office as Westchester County Executive and Lieutenant Governor of the State of New York, your presence within the community and the respect you garnered for your social consciousness and active involvement in matters of real concern in the community. You have always truly cared. My best wishes for a most successful launch and publication of your book.

Alfred B. DelBello
Former Westchester County Executive
And Lieutenant Governor of NY


You are truly a Renaissance man. I have to read a lot of material each day and have done so throughout my entire career in publishing and public relations and your book just touches a chord. It’s an account of a doctor who goes beyond regular care – a rarity in this age of litigation and HMO’s. I hope that your book gets published soon so that the reading public can learn to identify and appreciate those doctors, like you, in whom they can have confidence. Good Luck.

Dr. Klein has the perfect antidote for the usual boring medical memoir. Al Roker
Today Show I am a longtime patient of Dr. Richard Klein. During the many years of my high stress job as a corporate counsel he helped keep me in good health. Now is book is keeping me in good spirits. I learned. I laughed and I loved it.

Donald B. Jackson
Counselor At Law


From Anecdote to Anecdote is a great antidote for dispelling the notions of those who worry about the commitment of the medical profession. Dr. Richard Klein, in a sometimes humorous and sometimes poignant manner, demystifies the medical profession while at the same time instills confidence in the patients of a concerned and competent doctor that the odds are on their side. I enjoyed reading this book – it made me feel better.

Andrew Spano
Westchester County Executive


Dr. Richard Klein Expresses the rare combination of science and humanity in his approach to patient care. Much of the wisdom needed in diagnosis is required by the patient himself, if only we learn to listen and observe. The ability to truly discern disease among a set of signs and symptoms is an art, and Dr. Klein is a master of the craft. His book is must reading for all who are truly involved in the health and well-being of patients.

In our rapidly expanding technological age, old fashioned common sense seems quaint, even unnecessary. Yet in medicine, the ability to listen carefully, and with understanding, can often be more important than the results of a CT scan, or MRI.
Dr. Klein presents us with the wisdom of over 30 years of the thoughtful and incisive practice of medicine, and we can all enjoy and benefit from the knowledge he so skillfully communicates to us. This book is wonderful reading for doctors, would-be doctors, and their patients everywhere, so open wide and enjoy!

“Funny, warm and smart, this volume can help your physical and mental states----and make you laugh at the same time. This combination of Emily Goodman and Leo Rosten is just the right Rx to survive Bush’s America!”
