Publisher Comments:

If you're going to have a heart attack, an organ transplant, or a joint replacement, here's the key to getting the very best medical care: be a white, straight, middle-class male. This book by a pioneering black surgeon takes on one of the few critically important topics that haven't figured in the heated debate over health care reform--the largely hidden yet massive injustice of bias in medical treatment.

Growing up in Jim Crow-era Tennessee and training and teaching in overwhelmingly white medical institutions, Gus White witnessed firsthand how prejudice works in the world of medicine. And while race relations have changed dramatically, old ways of thinking die hard. In Seeing Patients White draws upon his experience in startlingly different worlds to make sense of the unconscious bias that riddles medical treatment, and to explore what it means for health care in a diverse twenty-first-century America.

White and co-author David Chanoff use extensive research and interviews with leading physicians to show how subconscious stereotyping influences doctor-patient interactions, diagnosis, and treatment. Their book brings together insights from the worlds of social psychology, neuroscience, and clinical practice to define the issues clearly and, most importantly, to outline a concrete approach to fixing this fundamental inequity in the delivery of health care.

Book News Annotation:

Dr. White (medical education and orthopedic surgery, Harvard Medical School), who grew up in the segregated South, is the first African American department chief at Harvard's teaching hospital. In this valuable contribution to understanding historical bias in healthcare toward minorities and women and improving the physician-patient relationship, he shares insights from personal experience and practical suggestions for enhancing awareness of cultural issues and the delivery of nondiscriminatory medical care. The book includes photos and the National Standards on Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
