Summary
Most people have visited a doctor’ 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 “ incarceritis” ? What are “ blocking” and “ turfing” ? And why do you never want to be diagnosed with a “ horrendoma” ? Dr. Goldman reveals the meaning behind the colorful and secret expressions doctors use to describe difficult patients, situations, and medical conditions— including those they don’ 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
