It is a veritable eye-opener and a window on our broken health system.

If this book were fiction, you would say that these things could never happen, that they are too Twilight Zonish and off-the-wall. However, they actually happened to Ellen and her mother.Ellen In Medicaland is a medical memoir of sixteen chapters. You will be with Ellen in Medical Care from Hell, where she was misdiagnosed with terminal cancer. You will read how the whole system botched her care: the doctors, the nurses and the administration, with never an apology from any of those involved. Instead, to them, Ellen’s traumatic experience was simply medical business as usual at this hospital and no one was accountable for the mistakes that were made.

Fortunately, Ellen lived to tell the tale.You will be with Ellen through four chapters of Looking For A Needle In A Haystack, where she searches for a good, competent primary care physician and mostly coming up empty. You will read about her interactions with these medical people and how most of them ultimately failed her, a healthy woman who needed the most minimal of medical care.Then you will read about Ellen’s experiences as a caregiver of her mother and her mother’s journey into Medicaland, which lasted for seven years when she had a chronic illness.

You will see how the surgeons, neurologists and other medical people related to Ellen and her mother – sometimes very kindly, other times without any basic human kindness. Medicaland, was a foreign country for Ellen and her mother, and it seemed many times as if they would never learn its language.Finally, you will learn from Ellen that you can get good health care – she is not bashing the medical profession.

However, you will see that you must be vigilant in Medicaland because it is very dangerous there for the uninformed.With her sparkling wit, humor and intelligence, Ellen takes you on a compelling medical journey, one you will be thinking about long after you put down her book.
