Summary
  • "By shedding light on how doctors cope with the stresses and responsibilities of patients, colleagues, lawyers, and their personal lives, she explains why it is important that patients know how emotions influence the way physicians treat their patients both medically and interpersonally. Exploring the full range of human emotion--from the fear of making a fatal mistake to the pride and elation of triumphing over death, What Doctors Feel allows patients at the other end of the stethoscope to have a good listen to the beat of the emotional life behind the white coat."--Beacon Press.
