Today’s New York Times has a review of two new books, Doctors with Plenty of Time for Patients. Reviewer Abigail Zuger MD says “Suppose … you could actually rent the doctor’s attention for as long as you needed it?” In these books two doctor take plenty of time to explain things to patients.

The first is Doctor, Your Patient Will See You Now: Gaining the Upper Hand in Your Medical Care, by Steven Kussin, MD, who became a patient himself after a serious car accident. The other is After Prostate Cancer: A What-Comes-Next Guide to a Safe and Informed Recovery, by Dr. Arnold Melman, chief of urology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
