Acupuncturist Is Novel’s Hero
Have you read NY Times best selling author (and doctor) Michael Palmer’s book, “The Second Opinion?” I haven’t but now that I know an acupuncturist plays a pivotal role I might ;).
In an intriguing novel about health care deceit, a dedicated young doctor brings in an acupuncturist to provide a second opinion (get it?) for a hospitalized patient who is being treated by a world famous surgeon opposed to all these new-fangled ideas. The acupuncturist is puzzled because, after a thorough assessment, his diagnosis is that the patient is healthy. Drum roll…… This sets the rest of the plot in motion as the young doc believes the acupuncturist and sets about uncovering this malevolent scheme.
