What Dumbass Doctors Tell You: A Patient’s Perspective
From a young age, we are taught to seek guidance from those who are more knowledgeable than ourselves. Doctors, surgeons, and nurses have all been educated in their specific fields, but this doesn’t always make them experts.
Over the past five years, Theresa Errante-Parrino has dealt with cancer. Here she records her breast cancer story, sharing behind-the-scenes details of her personal experiences. From dealing with difficult doctors to adjusting to a new lifestyle and new routines, the author gives insight into what having cancer is really like.
Having learned from her own trials, Errante-Parrino hopes to encourage others to take control of their medical situations as their own advocate, speaking out when they believe something isn’t going to help them.
With formal medical training as a certified medical assistant, pharmacy technician, paramedic, and X-ray technician, Theresa has the knowledge to recognize when medical conclusions are not truthful or correct.
Educate yourself and raise your voice, because no one knows your body like you do.
