The Patient's Playbook

When you or someone you love faces a health problem and critical decisions about treatment must be made, it's easy to become paralyzed. In fact, we actually often don't know how to make the best decisions to ensure the best possible outcome. It's no wonder that we place our fate in the hands of doctors, no questions asked.

The Patient's Playbook provides a roadmap that every American needs, no matter their age or income. Author and host Leslie Michelson reveals life-saving strategies and decision-making tools to empower viewers to completely rethink the way they interact with caregivers and hospitals, going step-by-step through the process of getting the best possible medical care, including how to:

- Find and forge a strong relationship with a primary-care physician
- Write down your family's health history
- Collect your medical records and doctor's notes and keep key information in your wallet
- Avoid the most common mistakes people make in the first 24 hours of a medical emergency
- Avoid over-treatment (which can be even more dangerous than under-treatment)
- Research the latest developments and innovations in care
- Immerse yourself: learn everything you can about your illness and the doctors who are passionate about it
- Make sure you've been correctly diagnosed
- identify the right treatment plan, and much more!
