Abstract:

Most people have visited a doctor & rsquo;s office or emergency room in their lifetime to gain clarity about an ailment or check in after a procedure. While doctors strive to ensure their patients understand their diagnoses, rarely do those outside the medical community understand the words and phrases we hear practitioners yell across a hospital hallway or murmur to a colleague behind office doors. Doctors and nurses use a kind of secret language, comprised of words unlikely to be found in a medical textbook or heard on television. In The Secret Language of Doctors, Dr. Brian Goldman decodes those code words for the average patient. What does it mean when a patient has the symptoms of & ldquo;incarceritis & rdquo;? What are & ldquo;blocking & rdquo; and & ldquo;turfing & rdquo;? And why do you never want to be diagnosed with a & ldquo;horrendoma & rdquo;? Dr. Goldman reveals the meaning behind the colorful and secret expressions doctors use to describe difficult patients, situations, and medical conditions & mdash;including those they don & rsquo;t want you to know. Gain profound insight into what doctors really think about patients in this funny and biting examination of modern medical culture.
