What happens when you are admitted to the hospital as a patient, and the physician assigned to be your doctor has never seen you before and knows absolutely nothing about you?
Welcome to Medicine in the 21st century, where the results of having a Hospitalist instead of your own doctor can be disastrous.
Specialist Dr. Aaron Bernstein enters the world of the Hospitalist firsthand when he confronts a schizophrenic patient who — literally — is a ticking time-bomb.
If you’re a fan of TV medical dramas, then The Hospitalist is the book for you. I felt like I was reading through a script for a multi-episode saga for a TV medical drama. Weisberg does an amazing job grabbing the attention of the reader through the use of drama and detailed medical terminology. Despite the book being a story of fiction, I felt that I learned a lot about the current healthcare system, and it open my eyes a great deal to what is going on.
I highly recommend The Hospitalist, for anyone who is looking for an interesting, fun and dramatic read.
