Summary

For all too many dedicated physicians, stuck in a cycle of seven-minute patient visits and production line healing, medicine has become a frustrating vocation. Furthermore, the current epidemic of chronic illness demands a new care standard that can break down the existing structural barriers to full resolution. It requires functional medicine.

The Evolution of Medicine provides step-by-step instruction for building a successful "community micropractice", one that engages both the patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership focused on the body as a whole rather than isolated symptoms. This invaluable handbook will awaken health professionals to exciting new career possibilities. At the same time, it will alleviate the fear of abandoning a conventional medical system that is bad for doctors, patients, and payers, as well as being ineffectual in the treatment of chronic ailments.

Welcome to a new world of modern medical care, delivered in a community setting. It's time to embrace The Evolution of Medicine and reignite your love for the art of healing.

There is hope for Modern Medicine- it's a new functional model

I really loved the complete honesty, transparency and practical details this book.
It Challenges the current order in a positive manner and provides a enlightening view of a new future paradigm which embraces community, empathy and interdependence as opposed to control, dominance and unethical profit.

This will be read multiple times.

As a functional medicine provider, I love what I do. This book makes me fall in love again and again with this style of practice. I will definitely be reading/listening to this book multiple times.

Provocative and inspiring! A MUST read

A must for anyone who's ever been disenchanted with their current doctor or their personal practice if you are the doctor. Thank you James Maskell for this excellent roadmap to the future of medicine.

Curing the doctors

Great overview of a model of medicine that can heal our "heath" system and also heal those that provide the care. Thanks for writing this book.

More BS medicine

This is a thinly disguised touting of alternative medicine. Total BS. I am surprised it is allowed to be considered a "Great Course". Functional medicine . There is nowhere in the book that is even close to explains how it is "functional"

Great idea but I wouldn't pay for it again

Maskell has good ideas to change health care and create a new business model that benefits health of both patients and providers.
That being said I'm kind of annoyed that I paid for this. I was expecting more of an introspection but hey he proved he can make money. I'd read it again.... If I got it for free
