Nationwide — Here’s what people are saying about “Misdiagnosed: The Search for Dr. House”, the new medical memoir by author Nika C. Beamon:
“A saga of dealing with a chronic illness that shows how health intertwines with work, love and life.” — Kirkus Reviews
“Anyone interested in a medical mystery with a real-life heroine will appreciate MISDIAGNOSED’s story and Beamon’s long fight to achieve good health.” — IndieReader
Other praise for Misdiagnosed:
“Nika’s book is a well written, eye opening, call to action. An inspiring, yet alarming story that lets us know that even in our darkest and most alone moments that we are not alone.” — Wes Moore, Bestselling author, The Other Wes Moore
“Misdiagnosed is an eye-opening, fascinating account of a brave journey through the labyrinth of American medicine. Beamon draws the reader in skillfully, and gives us a close up view of the power of human persistence.” — Marya Hornbacher, Pulitzer prize nominated author of Wasted: A Memoir of Anorexia and Bulimia.
“How long can my body endure all the invasions by doctors? Nika Beamon’s cry is heard throughout Misdiagnosed: The Search for Dr. House. That doc does not exist, of course, but the author’s journey across hazardous terrain in the medical jungle did. Her misery being mangled by modern medicine provides lessons on arming ourselves for the battles many of us face.” — Richard M. Cohen, New York Times Best Selling author of Blindsided and Strong at the Broken Places.
“This is a book is a “must read” for all doctors and healthcare professionals… Enigmatic to most physicians, devastating to patients, the stuff of science fiction, and limitless in presentation; autoimmune diseases are the frontier of medicine in the 21st century…Read Nika’s story to understand why patients long for a diagnosis.” — Robert G. Lahita MD, PhD, FACP, MACR, FRCP
