Summary
"With many common health conditions-diabetes, arthritis, depression-there is no one right route to effective treatment, and science does not give us one definitive answer. In practical chapters and through real stories, Dr. Zachary Berger shows how to bridge the gap between scientific knowledge, doctors' recommendations, and patient preferences."--
