Summary

"Want to be respected? Spend BIG money? Shop till you drop? Feel like you're better than everybody else... because you ARE? It's SIMPLE, it's EASY... easier than you think! Marry a Beverly Hills Doctor!"

The Doctor Dance - Confessions of a Beverly Hills Doctors Wife is a non-fiction tell all book chronicling the true experiences of an 'almost' dutiful wife of a Board Certified Infectious Disease Specialist in Beverly Hills. As manager of her husband's office, Jennie Louise Frankel noted the miracles and mistakes, amorous adventures, triumphant accomplishments and greed of doctors around her. Her lavish and extravagant lifestyle, was funded by insurance companies, drug conglomerates and willing patients seeking answers from doctors whose sometimes less than altruistic motives influenced their patients' care.

The title "The Doctor Dance" was chosen because Jennie noticed that patients were often passed around from specialist to specialist who stood in line to sign the dance cards of the "good patients": those with private medical insurance; those with a terminal illness and three operations to go; those who were famous.

This New York Times Best Selling Author ("You'll Never Make Love In This Town Again" - 450,000 copies sold) humorously shines a surgical bright white light on a group of professionals whose rarified universe she witnessed first hand.

In his Foreword to The Doctor Dance, Dr. Joseph E. Gutierrez, MD FAC, points out that "Many of the abuses and the shocking behavior here recounted by Jennie are largely addressed today by the American Medical Association's Council on Ethical and Judicial Affairs, etc." Yet, these experiences happened just the same during the ten years Jennie managed her husbands' office. So, put on your paper gown, prepare for a cold stethoscope, breathe deeply, bend over and cough. After reading this profoundly candid 'patient primer', you may never 'open up and say ahhh' the same way again!
