Sample text:

DO YOU HAVE A GOOD WORKING RELATIONSHIP with your doctor? If not, you should keep reading. If you do, you should keep reading, because you might strengthen that relationship with what you are about to learn.
I am sure your doctor is a caring, kind and thoughtful individual. However, he is not super-human, and he is not God. Your doctor, at some point, had to possess intelligence and curiosity or he would not be your doctor today. The life-path through college, medical school, residency and medical practice is a very demanding, tricky road. As a result, not everyone can travel it. At some earlier point in his life, your doctor was an energetic, eager-to-learn, ready-to-try-new-things student, who couldn't wait to learn everything possible and apply it to improving the health of his patients. What has happened to him since then? How did your doctor change from being an intelligent, curious creature into a stuck-in-a-rut, bored, burned-out individual who just spent a whopping three minutes with you for your medical visit? That is a complicated question, and it varies from doctor to doctor. In the following pages, I will attempt to explain the thinking and motivation of your doctor. This will help you understand what is happening during the average office visit, and what is going on behind the scenes and inside the head of your doctor. Let me begin by telling you the story of one doctor I know, me.
I went through medical school with 175 other individuals of all shapes and sizes, ethnicities and genders. We had all done the work and suffered the hardships to get there for one reason, to become doctors. Some of my friends in medical school were only there because their family had demanded they either go to medical school or law school. Some were there only because they wanted to be the first person in their family ever to become a doctor.
