Throughout his fifty-year medical practice, Dr. Keith Dahlberg has practiced family medicine both in the United States and among the hill tribes of Southeast Asia. He has focused especially on those who have difficulty getting access to medical care.
This book offers a common sense, many-sided approach to America's present medical delivery problems, and the more than forty-five million American citizens who have no medical insurance.
Dr. Dahlberg writes both to the family that is searching for better medical care, and to doctors who seek to improve it.
