The following quotes and "snippets" of quotes are from the endorsements for BEDSIDE MANNERS: The Pain Clinician's Guide to Effective Medical Communication:
"A wonderful, easy read packed full of great information regarding the importance of our words and state of mind. A must-read for anyone involved in the healing arts, but since we all interact with others all the time .... everyone could benefit from the tips on communication and self-awareness. Loved the easy-to-do, quick exercises he included."
- Anne King, CH.
"A year ago I walked into a one hour presentation at PAINweek on something that I had always been interested in; Medical Hypnosis presented by these two crazy guys - Michael Ellner & Dan Cleary. I walked out several hours later with my practice and direction profoundly altered. Read this. Try it. Play with it. Better yet build in a moment of silence to practice these techniques between every patient; for your patients, for your health, for the profound possibility that exists in that moment to literally transform your life and your practice. Not bad for a light read."
- Stephen Manigo-Hedt, MS, PA-C, CHt.
"This is stuff we should have learned in medical school, it just wasn't taught. Ellner's book helps fill the doctor-patient gap that we are creating with technology. Ten minutes of reading and 3 minutes of mental exercises, several times a day will likely save providers hours of unnecessary work per week. It will also improve their relationship with each of their patients. I really like this book!"
- Eduardo Gembs, M.D., FAAFP
"Exceptional. I have applied these techniques and teachings to my personal life and my practice."
- G. Ernest Lofton MD, MPH. CH
"... Offers vital reminders for experienced practitioners and essential lessons for all others who treat persons with pain.
