I would like to introduce a fellow author, Ken Brigham. We both have books published by Kellan Publishing. Like me, he is retired. In his case, he is a retired doctor and medical professor. He writes medical mysteries based on his vast experience.
I hope many of you have read my book, Reducing Medical Costs (At the Cost of Health). I also hope you enjoyed the story about a family of medical professionals trying to uncover why family members have died at the hands of other doctors, and under suspicious conditions. There is mystery, danger, and romance all in the context of the medical arts industry. You may buy my book from Kellan Publishing as an e-book or in paperback.
You may also enjoy a book by my colleague, Ken Brigham. Ken’s book also involves a medical mystery, but was written more along the lines of a traditional mystery. The book is Death in Printer’s Alley. Follow the link to learn about Ken and about his book.
I think you will find both books interesting to read. Medical care has come into the news. First because people need good medical care today more than ever. Also because medical care has been debated on the political stage for over a decade. Efforts have been made to socialize medicine. Efforts have been made by governments and by insurance companies to make medical care more cost efficient by administrative methods. Most recently, The Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare, has tried to use the power of the federal government to push the entire population of the US into the government’s idea of good insurance and good healthcare.
Obamacare may have been well intended, but it is well known that the law has failed to meet the objectives set out for it. Most important is that the government meddling with healthcare has disrupted the relationship between patient and doctor. For millenia, this relationship of mutual trust and communication is what has enabled doctors to diagnose and treat their patients limited only by the doctor’s knowledge and skill. Now government is trying to tell doctors what is best for the patient.
Read both of these books for an insight into the difficulties doctors have treating patients in the context of government mandated healthcare.
