About the Author

Isadore Rosenfeld, MD, is the Ida and Theo Rossi Distinguished Professor of Clinical Medicine and an attending physician at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center. He served for years on the Practicing Physicians Advisory Council for the Secretary of Health and Human Services. His bestsellers include Doctor, What Should I Eat?, The Best Treatment, and Symptoms. He practices in New York City and lives in Westchester County, New York.


This useful home health guide is a hypochondriac's delight, as physician Rosenfeld ( Modern Prevention ) describes bodily ailments and symptoms running the gamut from heartburn to fainting spells, blurred vision to yellow eyeballs, memory loss to constipation. Are such disorders nothing serious--or a good reason to start worrying? Rosenfeld contends that his book will give most readers an idea of what a symptom really indicates, what should be done about it and how quickly. ``In my experience, the first opinion of an informed patient usually turns out to be right.'' He is careful to note, however, that Symptoms is not intended to replace a visit to the doctor; rather, it is a tool for patients to rely on in describing their problems with increased accuracy. In 17 chapters Rosenfeld gives intelligent suggestions on how to play medical detective and pin down the likely diagnosis, and explains how age, sex, family medical history and habits can offer additional clues to a symptom's meaning. His book will save readers time, money and, best of all, anxiety. BOMC , QPBC , MacMillan Book Club , Preferred Choice Book Plan and Rodale Press Book Club alternates. (Apr.)
