Dr. Harbert, who contributed health articles to Family Circle magazine for several years, presents medical ideas and facts in a plainspoken, accessible style that will empower you to take charge of your health. He teaches you how to diagnose your medical problems and describes the symptoms, treatment, prognosis, and prevention of over 425 diseases and conditions. Whenever possible he recommends simple methods and medicines, and tells you frankly when to seek professional medical help.
Doctor in the House also covers first aid and emergency techniques, provides over fifty "focus boxes" that highlight practical information critical to managing your medical problems, and supplies contact information (many with telephone numbers) for numerous support and health advocacy groups. Also included are sample copies of a legally enforceable living will, a medical directive, and a durable power of attorney.
With Dr. John C. Harbert's Doctor in the House, you will find the real medical understanding and help that are the first steps to good health, long life, and fewer medical bills!
