Overview

MEDICINE BETWEEN THE LINES is a timely collection of thought-provoking essays written by one of America's most prolific medical writers. From cover to cover, Dr. Remakus leads a guided tour behind the scenes of American health care and reveals little known facts about such topics as: managed care, medical malpractice, bioterrorism, sports medicine, medical ethics, government control of medicine, and current controversies in the medical literature.

MEDICINE BETWEEN THE LINES is a close look at contemporary health care from an uncommon perspective. Not sponsored by any professional society, political party or special interest group, the book reflects the experiences, observations and conclusions of one man who has lived through and written about the great American health care experiment for more than three decades.

Editorial Reviews:
"After a long day of fighting to get patients the care they deserve, it is a sheer pleasure to settle down with one of Dr. Remakus' gems and be reminded of the reason we're in this challenging profession of medicine. Once you start MEDICINE BETWEEN THE LINES, it's hard to put the book down." DR. MARK A. NOVITSKY, SR., psychiatrist and Corporate Medical Director of the Kirkbride Center

"If you've ever wanted your doctor to put down his stethoscope and tell you frankly what he thinks of the health care financing system, medical support structure and patient care, you'll find that Dr. Remakus gets to the heart of many issues. Seldom do physicians go beyond jottings on a prescription pad, but Dr. Remakus is as clear as he is caring." BILL JAKER, producer and host of "Off The Page," WSKG Public Broadcasting

"MEDICINE BETWEEN THE LINES is a collection of essays that covers topics surrounding our health care system, special interest groups, malpractice, government spending cuts and HMOs. Readers will enjoy Dr. Remakus' clear and comedic writing style. While he makes his arguments, he throws in little jokes and anecdotes that will bring forth chuckles. The great thing about this book is that the essays can be read in any order. At just over 200 pages, readers can get what they want out of this book, when they want it." - PORTLAND BOOK REVIEW (Rated *****)
