“I want Margaret Fitzpatrick at my side for guidance and advice when I face medical decisions in advanced age and illness.” -Dr. Charles von Gunten, M.D., PhD, Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Palliative Medicine
“Margaret Fitzpatrick is the Sherpa we all need as we climb the Mount Everest of American Health Care. I truly wish I had this book 10 years ago when my family stumbled into a cascade of medical errors, clueless on how to navigate these difficult, often perilous waters. I’m glad I have it now. Keep this book close - it may save your life or the life of a loved one.” -Steve Burrows, Writer/Director of the new HBO film BLEED OUT
