Praise for “Tell Me How You Die Easy” – The Book
Many people in health care are very good at treating all kinds of complicated and painful diseases. That the malady resides in a human body can sometimes be an afterthought. But Francisco Garriga, M.D. focuses first and foremost on the patient; a person with a name, a life, and a family whose body has become home to an illness.
In “Tell Me How You Die Easy,” Dr. Garriga shows doctors the keys to offering great personal care while also delivering all the wonders medical science has to offer. He has compiled the most compelling and pertinent personal stories from more than 36 years in practice to deliver a primer on humane healing that students, doctors, and patients can easily digest. Students at the Washington University School of Medicine, where Dr. Garriga has been a clinical instructor since 1976, found these stories so valuable that they encouraged him to write “Tell Me How You Die Easy.”
Philip Alderson, M.D., Vice President for Medical Affairs and Dean, St. Louis University School of Medicine
"Dr. Garriga's book hits the target. In all of these stories about real people, the importance of physicians taking the time to listen to their patients comes through."
Robert J. Henkel, FACHE, President and CEO, Ascension Health
"This book is a must read for all physicians and caregivers in the health care field, whether in training or having practiced for many years. The stories remind us we are all human and are dependent on each other."
Carlos E. Girod, M.D., Professor Emeritus and former Dean, University of Puerto Rico School of Medicine
"This is an important work and reference for those who aspire to study in any branch of the health professions, particularly for future medical students. Physicians in training and in practice will recognize and relish the situations and implications of each clinical story."
