Interview with Dr. Barry Silverman, author of the book Your Doctors' Manners Matter: Better Health Through Civility in the Doctor's Office and in the Hospital

 

________________

 

Mike Carruthers:
Changes in the healthcare system have not been especially good for the patient experience.

 

Dr. Barry Silverman:
We have less nursing staff so the nurses are overwhelmed. The doctor’s reimbursements have been down so they try to see more and do more to keep their incomes up and the result is there’s often less communication with the patient.

Interview with Roger James Hamilton, author of the book The Millionaire Master Plan: Your Personalized Path to Financial Success

 

________________

 

Mike Carruthers:
Different people have different ideas on how to succeed.

 

Roger James Hamilton:
When someone like Warren Buffet says don’t go out and take risk but do things you understand and then you have someone like Richard Branson who says no, no go out and do amazing things you’ve never done before. They’re actually saying the opposite of each other and they’re both right it’s just that they have different geniuses to get there.
