Secrets Most Doctors Aren't Sharing

Dr. Traci Ferguson Weighs in on 21 Secrets to Amazing Health

A number of studies and sources cite that patients are growing impatient at the doctor's office. They spend more time waiting to SEE a doctor than they do visiting one and this imbalance leaves too many things left unsaid. Traci Ferguson, M.D., a Johns Hopkins graduate and member of America's premier medical honor society, Alpha Omega Alpha, offers a new Rx for optimum living in her new book, 21 Secrets to Amazing Health.

It's scary enough that the average doctor's visit lasts less than 20 minutes, worse still that the time wasted in waiting rooms can easily exceed three times that!

It can be next to impossible to cover every pressing medical concern when everyone is so pressed for time. In the long-run, this "wham bam, thank you ma'am" approach can leave patients clinging to the proverbial short end of the stick.

According to one physician, Traci Ferguson, M.D., a Johns Hopkins graduate and author of the new book, 21 Secrets to Amazing Health, "Doctors know much more about your health than they're telling you and what they're NOT sharing could honestly kill you. You can't afford to be left in the dark when it comes to your health and well-being. Ask those tough questions and demand honest, frank answers from your doctor - don't be afraid to take control!"

To help patients accomplish this goal, Dr. Ferguson has taken her years of medical training, experience and intimate knowledge of patient administration and advocacy and compiled them together into a 268-page guidebook that puts patient care back where it belongs - in the patients' hands.

Dr. Ferguson bravely faces tough and touchy subjects ranging from sex to survival to supplements. Entertaining and easy to read, 21 Secrets to Amazing Health offers answers to questions that plague people universally:

-- Bone loss
-- Blood pressure
-- Diabetes
-- Prostate health
-- Strokes
-- Heart attacks
-- Cholesterol
-- Sex
-- & more

Dr. Ferguson brings her bedside manner to patients' bedside tables and unlocks the secrets of longer, livelier living.
