I'm beginning a Discussion thread to share "insider tips" on how to navigate the Mayo system of care and organizing a visit to Rochester. I invite you to join me in sharing these tips.
A few years ago, I mentioned to our Mayo doc that coming to Rochester was like a visit to Disney World....you don't know where to stay, where to eat, how to get the best out of the Clinic. "What patients could use is an insider's guide, like the Birnbaum guides to Disneyland and Disney World." The doc said: "Why don't you write it?" Long story short, the good folks at Mayo offered their full cooperation and I wrote the book! "The Insider's Guide to Mayo Clinic: Expert Advice for Patients and Family from the Patient's Perspective." You can find it at clinicinsidersguide.com. It's helped many hundreds of patients and family to navigate the Mayo system and make informed choices in Rochester. Especially useful for first-timers.
To your health!
