“I just read Quinley’s book Bulletproofing Your Medical Practice: Risk Management Techniques That Work. I was really impressed. It took me just five minutes of reading to discover a major risk I was taking. This book is an eye-opener (and tells you how to protect yourself from being “blinded”). This book is easy to read and gives easy to follow pointers to protect your practice and your patients. If you read this book and don’t find at least three things to change in your practice, read it over again. If your practice is so busy that you don’t think that you have time to read this, stop right now and start reading Bulletproofing Your Medical Practice to protect what you are working so hard for.” David Pursley, MD, Fellow, American Academy of Neurology
“A reader-friendly and concise book on the ABC’s of medical risk management, with lots of easy to remember and practical tips.”- Alberto M. Goldwaser, MD, Forensic Psychiatric Associates
“Bulletproofing Your Medical Practice: Risk Management Techniques That Work is a practical text that makes suggestions of things that every physician can implement to reduce malpractice risk. I would like to see a copy of this text in the hands of every physician. Excellent text – well written practice coverage of risk management. The one text that I would recommend to every physician. In fact, if a physician were going to read only one text this year, this would be the one. Absolutely the best text on medical malpractice and risk management I have seen in fifteen years. This text belongs in the personal library of every physician from resident to senior attending. I plan to give a copy to all of my practice colleagues in Emergency Medicine and Family Practice including my physician assistants and nurse practitioners." - Terrance L. Baker, MD
As a practicing physician you have worked long and hard to build up your medical practice. Why risk it all if you don’t have to? This concise and easy to read text contains simple techniques for you to use to reduce/avoid costly potential malpractice and insurance pitfalls.
