"René Muller has done excellent work in the care of patients and in the descriptions of their problems. He brings a fresh eye to the emergency room and to the service of the mentally ill, as one can see reading these essays."
- Paul R. McHugh, M.D., Psychiatrist-in-Chief Emeritus, Johns Hopkins
"Psych ER, an easily readable, slim volume, emphasizes the narrative perspective of the life story of the individual. The power of the stories that emerge grip the reader and make it a valuable addition to our literature. The cases that are discussed come alive through such storytelling and offer many useful clinical pearls through these extended vignettes. Each individual's subjective experience beautifully demonstrates the pain and suffering such individuals experience, and gives us an empathic view that should help in managing such problems. The book is excellent reading for any mental health care professional because of the clinical wisdom embedded within it, but would be even better for hospital administrators to review and see if they themselves can answer the question of why emergency services are so poorly supported when they are so essentially needed."
Thomas N. Wise, M.D., Psychiatric Times
"Psych ER is an excellent book for the medical reader who wishes to become better acquainted with DMS-IV diagnostic criteria and develop understanding of how a savvy psychiatric clinician navigates the nuances to make these diagnoses."
- Fiona Gallahue, M.D., Academic Emergency Medicine
"I found it a heart warming book and compelling reading with reminders of how we listen to patients'stories and how they present problems. Refreshingly readable and engaging, I fail to see how any emergency nurse will not find it useful."
