A Kind Review of My Books in FAMILY MEDICINE

I found out today that my books are reviewed in the December issue of Family Medicine:

“Originally from Sweden, Hans Duvefelt, MD, trained at Central Maine Medical Center 40 years ago and has practiced in rural Maine ever since. In 2008, he began writing a reflective blog to document his medical experiences, and that writing ultimately became the basis for these collections of brief vignettes. The topics range from his initial impressions of medical school to meaningful personal connections with patients, difficult diagnoses, exciting patient encounters, and even his own experiences as a patient.”

“Through his words as a seasoned and experienced generalist, Duvefelt reminds us all to examine why we practice medicine and to reflect on our experiences in a way that encourages not only learning, but also gratitude for the ability to participate in the many moments of our patients’ lives.”

    Congratulations! While I’ve not read your books, the article describes my experience of your blog posts, albeit from the perspective as a mental health professional with parallel thoughts about the mental health field and mental health clients.

Osler said “Listen to your patient, he is telling you the diagnosis”. Duvefelt says “Listen to your patient, he is telling you what kind of doctor he needs you to be”.
