DocBlock.com, Dr. Jerome Block, MD has an Integrative and Internal Medicine practice in Tulsa, OK that caters to patients who have seen many doctors in the past, but who have not seen any results or improvement in their health! Dr. Jerome Block, MD is the real ife "House". He achieves results when others have failed. Here are some passages from Dr. Block's book:
"Two doctors, three opinions are given, but the opinion that is the most important is YOURS, the patient. It is not the physician who will suffer the most if good therapies go on getting it wrong, an adverse drug reaction occurs, or the operation was a success, but the patient died, but you and your family should be in charge of your health both preventively and therapeutically! A healing relationship with your physician is important, and teamwork is key, but it should be you as the patient who is responsible for the path to take. The doctor is the knowledgeable coach or advisor, perhaps a family member, too, could be the team manager, but there is no doubt that if you are in your right mind, the decision of care should be yours! It is important for you to be as knowledgeable as possible on the medical problem at hand. Information from the Internet, perhaps starting at Wikipedia, then a noncommercial website, such as WebMD, should be considered. Speaking to other patients with a similar problem, as well as reading magazine articles or books can give a good working knowledge on your medical issue. Even getting another professional opinion from a physician who is not in cahoots with your original doc is a good idea.
Too often, primary care physicians function as gate-keepers; they may open the floodgates and let the patient drown in too many medical procedures and medicines. Fragmentation in medical care also is rampant today. The patient who decides what organ or area their problem lies in sees that specialist. Therefore, there is a cardiologist for their heart, a pulmonologist for their lungs, a nephrologist for their kidneys, a hematologist for their blood, and a “Big Toe doctor” for their gout. That leaves us with no one to take care of the whole person; moreover, the left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing.
The gastroenterologist does not effectively communicate with the neurologist. If your primary care doctor does not function as a knowledgeable clinical coordinator, then that responsibility by default falls to you. As I try to set forth in this book, it is not how old a person is that counts, but how they feel and function when they are old. Medicine and certainly not this book alone have all the answers, but with your significant participation you will enable yourself to age gracefully and to live a full and abundant life. It is imperative, then, to DISCOVER THE DOCTOR WITHIN!"
