The “Dr. Guide“ books brand now encompasses over 80 titles in fields such as allergy, asthma, COPD, diabetes, lifestyle, natural product usage, orthopedics and wound care.

The success of the Dr. Guide books is attributed to their

  • reader-friendly style
  • comprehensive information
  • snappy content
  • themes of prevention, self care, self help and well-explained treatment options.


There a trend towards patients and caregivers becoming empowered to achieve a healthy outcome, not only through choice but out of necessity because of shrinking health care budgets. Health care professionals from pharmacists to medical specialists can all benefit from more informed and motivated patients and customers and should encourage patients become more knowledgeable and consumer oriented towards health care.

Mediscript books are unique, innovative and practical. They do not overwhelm the patient with voluminous content and technical terminology, they provide the essence of what a patient needs to know to help themselves get better quicker.

Health care professionals use the book as an educational treatment option to save time and empower the patient.

Dr. Guide books are carefully designed to enable the patient/reader to appreciate the importance of the health condition and develop a readiness to change behavior or adhere to treatment.


Whether you are a pharma company seeking greater market share, a pharmacy chain looking for an effective educational piece, or a physician needing more patient compliance and less lengthy counseling time, Dr. Guide books offer you solutions.

MediScript has diversified into some other publication and technological offerings including professional reference guides and CD PowerPoint/training presentations. All Dr. Guide books and associated products are being offered as download options within precision health focused websites designed to satisfy the needs of both patients and health care professionals.


MediScript’s global expansion, together with rapidly developing innovative ways of providing health education, translates into a worthwhile ally for you.

We pride ourselves in keeping the price of the book to the health care professional extremely low, sometimes a little as $2.00 per book, so that we know the time you save talking to patients, in $ terms, far exceeds the small cost of the book.

We publish effective health education products creatively. Please visit our Products and Services Section to see how we can make information work for you.


Ken Watts

Born and raised in Liverpool, England, Ken grew up with a competitive streak that helped him win chess tournaments, took him to the top of every class (except metal-work), and eventually landed him in pharmaceutical sales, where he quickly rose to the position of marketing director.

After immigrating to Canada in 1975, he broke from the corporate world and established his own medical publishing company in the mid 1990’s Mediscript Communications. Under this imprint, he wrote and published some 80 self-help titles dealing with allergies and asthma, relaxation and stress, wound care and many others.

Although he had much success with his business, along with setbacks, it was never the money or status that counted with Ken; it was always the satisfaction of bringing complex medical terminology to the every day person.

His motto is Audentes Fortuna Juvat – Fortune Favours the Bold.

We forget sometimes the power of the patient for healing through compliance and self care habits. We should provide understandable information.
