David Page

David PageI’m fortunate to have two passions beyond my wonderful family. My first passion is teaching and performing surgery. After a thirty year career, I now do more teaching ( medical students and residents) at Baystate Medical Center, Tufts University School of Medicine’s Western Campus, than performing surgery. My second passion is writing fiction and non-fiction. I use both passions to accomplish my current life goals:

  • patient advocacy
  • studying and writing about the interface between literature and medicine
  • encouraging patients to find their own voices in the impersonal technological health care world

I hope you’ll enjoy my books. I welcome your suggestions about ways doctors, nurses, and other health care professionals may improve their interactions with patients and with each other. I’m excited to participate in a dialogue with you about where we are in patient-physician communication and where we can improve. You can write about it, too. Our common goal is to make medical and surgical care safe and error-free.
