Doctors Talking with Patients/Patients Talking with Doctors: Improving Communication in Medical Visits

By Debra L. Roter; Judith A. Hall | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

A number of wonderful people have helped by giving us ideas and criticizing drafts of chapters. These include Fred Gordon, Nancy Hall, Ed Krupat, Mark Knapp, and Rima Rudd. We wish particularly to thank physician friends who not only criticized drafts but helped sensitize us to the physician's point of view as a reader: Arnold Epstein, R. Heather Palmer, Klea Bertakis, Timothy Quill, and Mack Lipkin, Jr. Susan Waller did much to sensitize us to the patient's point of view. Susan Larson, our valued colleague, helped immeasurably in the preparation of this book and the conduct of much of our research. We extend warm thanks to Max Hall, whose advice on writing style was taken over and over.

We are especially grateful to John Hamey, our editor, who encouraged and supported us, making timely publication of this book possible.

The most meaningful support in the writing of this book has come from our spouses, Eric Waller and Fred Gordon. And, of course, from our children: Saul, Benjamin, and Annie Rose, and Jacob, Rebecca, and Sarah.

Finally, we thank each other--for making up for each other's defects, for inspiration, and for being there for one another.
