‘Your Doctor Is Not God’
How To Be The CEO Of Your Own Health
Authored by Entrepreneur & Clinical Psychologist, Aanchal Bhatia
‘Your Doctor Is Not God’, published by Bloomsbury, is a path breaking self-help book that empowers and endeavours to bring better balance in the patient-doctor relationship. It accomplishes this seemingly gigantic task by providing simple awareness, knowledge of processes and better acumen around decision making on healthcare, making each party more accountable and communicative. The Author provides practical tips and well informed techniques to readers to get the best medical care and treatment for themselves and their families. Based on case studies, personal experiences and research, the book has 9 distinct chapters. The book also delves into the evolution of medicine, treatment and surgery down to the present point when its ethos seems hollow and ineffective.
The book, authored by Aanchal Bhatia will be launched on February 26, 2016 at 6.30 PM at ITC Maurya with a Panel Discussion and Charity Night. The proceeds of the book will go to the NGO, ‘Breathe Easy India’. During the charity event, Aisha Chaudhary’s acclaimed book, ‘My Little Epiphanies’ will also be sold as will paintings by artist, Neha Mehandiratta. Eminent journalist, Shoma Chaudhray will moderate the panel discussion. ‘Your Doctor Is Not God’ has already received several tributes and endorsements from Dr. Naresh Trehan, Chairman & Managing Director, Medanta; Mr. Shivinder Mohan Singh, Executive Vice Chairman, Fortis Healthcare; Dr. Mark Tager, Author & CEO, Changewell Training Academy; Dr. Anil Keith D’Cruz, Director, Tata Memorial; Dr. Daivd L Helfet, Prof. of Surgery, Orthopedics, Cornell University; Mr. Ashwin Sanghi, Author; Ms. Dia Mirza and Ms. Manisha Koirala, Actors.
According to the Author, Ms. Aanchal Bhatia, “Modern medical science is marvelous but is limited by its present focus on physical means of treatment and commercial targets. I thank the Indian healthcare industry which angered me so much that I had to step up to write this book. There is an urgent need to have a dramatic change in the way we approach healthcare in our country. Sound primary healthcare can prevent many diseases that become very expensive to treat in the long term. Further, people will remain healthy if they live in harmony with the healing energies of Nature. As for the doctors of the future, they will hopefully be scientifically sound while being intuitively alert to the signals of nature and the core essence of their chosen profession. Improvements and advances only in medical technology are insufficient to improve the quality of crucial service delivery.”
The CSR arm of the Uttam Group, ‘Breathe Easy India’ is India’s first not-for-profit organization that focuses on creating awareness about respiratory conditions and health revival. It also provides free second opinion for underprivileged patients diagnosed with rare medical conditions.
