Author Series: Dr. Lawrence Levitt

In light of the escalating costs of healthcare in the U.S. and the on-going debate about insurance reform, it’s easy to forget about the human side of medicine and the importance of the doctor-patient relationship. In “Uncommon Wisdom,” neurologists John Castaldo and Dr. Lawrence Levitt share what they have learned, not just from tests and labs, but from years of listening and learning from their patients. The sixteen tales in this book show doctors as human beings: flawed and full of doubt, wonder, and reverence about what it means to be alive. They remind us that the medical profession should be about treating people with dignity and that medical miracles don’t always involve medicine.
