The health care - medical professional’s field is among the most important callings on earth but doctors and medical workers have very difficult and very stressful jobs. There has also arisen an unmistakable doctor-shortage in many areas of America. This has increased the workload of medical staff and professionals and some of them are experiencing a condition referred to by medical research groups, as “burn out”. Doctors can be seriously affected both mentally and physically by this very real and increasing problem. At the same time, medical patients can also be negatively affected, in-fact medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the US currently and the problem has potential to become even worse.

Is there a solution to this problem? As a layperson, non medical professional, I certainly cannot predict either a solution or a worsening of the problem. As a patient with diagnosed medical disorders, I can however express what I believe to be essential actions from both the patient’s and doctor’s side, that must be taken in order to help us become better-partnered. It is my sincere hope that whether medical professionals read the chapters that follow or medical patients do, that they will consider these suggestions that are backed by medical research quotes and statistics, with an open mind. The future of our Nation’s health care, depends on the actions we take now, to improve and to maintain its quality.

NOTE: This ebook is approximately 6,549 words in length.  It is not an extensive medical journal but rather contains aspects of information on the subject that most laypersons would be seeking.
