-Martin Grais, M.D., cardiologist

Albert J. Miller recognized the need for a nonprofessional's approach to the subject of chest pain after his patients continued to borrow his book Diagnosis of Chest Pain, which he had penned for physicians and medical students. Chest Pain, the offspring of Miller's previous book, is devoid of complex medical jargon and is ideal for doctors and nurses to use for patient education. In this easy-to-understand guide, the author explains the large number of possible causes for chest pain and the types of pain that could signal danger.

Albert J. Miller, M.D., is board certified in cardiovascular medicine and is in the clinical practice of cardiology at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. He is also a professor of clinical medicine (cardiology) at Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine. He is a former president of the Chicago Heart Association, is a fellow of the American College of Cardiology, and has spent much of his career in clinical practice and research related to cardiology. He has authored more than one hundred medical papers and has long had an interest in the study of chest pain. He lives in Highland Park, Illinois, with his wife, Gwen.

    This excellent book is a valuable resource for educating people

    This excellent book is a valuable resource for educating people in terms of what they should do when they experience chest pain. Written by an exceptionally qualified and experienced cardiologist it provides the information needed to identify chest that is serious verses chest pain that it is not. As the author states, his book is no substitute for seeing a physician when chest pain is experienced but it sure does explain different types of chest pain can. This book is well worth reading and having on hand.
