The Doctor, His Patient and the Illness, Hardback

The Doctor, His Patient and the Illness Hardback


First published in 1957, with a slight update in 1964, this classic text remains one of the standard works on the doctor patient relationship (largely as found in general practice).

This new edition provides an updated descriptive analysis of the doctor-patient relationship, with practical advice on the potential and limits to the doctors involvement with the patient.
