Dr. Barry D. Silverman and Dr. Saul M. Adler have written a short and easy book addressing what patients should expect from their doctors in terms of service, respect, and human compassion.
Using examples from their own practices and from those of their colleagues to illustrate their points, this book not only addresses what a patient should expect in terms of manners from their doctors but also what patients can do if they are not satisfied.
Dr. Barry D. Silverman joined the Emory faculty in 1973 and began a teaching and clinical cardiology program at Northside Hospital, where he eventually became chief of cardiology. He is a member of the American College of Physicians and the American College of Cardiology and served as chairman of their state educational programs. He serves on the board of the county medical society of the American Medical Association and serves on the editorial board of Atlanta Medicine, the Medical Association of Atlanta’s journal. Currently, he continues to practice cardiology with Northside Cardiology and teaches on the Emory service at Grady Memorial Hospital.
After retiring as the founder of the pediatric ICU of the Scottish Rite Campus of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and the founder and longtime director of Atlanta’s busiest special care nursery, Dr. Saul M. Adler completed a Master of Arts degree in Professional Writing from Kennesaw State University. His short stories have been published in Atlanta Medicine, The Chattahoochee Review, and The Examined Life, as well as in an anthology devoted to Georgia authors.
