What are Dr. Guide Books?

The Dr. Guide books are a series of unique, low-cost books that impart key health educational messages designed to empower patients and consumers towards sound self care behaviors.

Difficult technical terms are pronounced and explained. The Dr. Guide books are aimed at the lay person and act often as the voice for medical professionals who sometimes do not have the time to explain everything in detail.

Health topics are covered comprehensively and include the following:

  • an overview of relevant symptoms
  • self help tips
  • generic preventive information
  • important lifestyle issues
  • self assessment sections
  • explanation of treatment options
  • lists of further resources.

The Dr. Guide books are practical and interactive, containing space to personalize information, making them somewhat like workbooks.

The major premise behind The Dr. Guide books are the fact that the body is a powerful self healer and the individual can learn to help him or herself. The books work in parallel with the medical team encouraging adherence to treatment.

Distribution:

All our books are available for purchase individually, whether online through this website or through online retailers like Amazon and Barnes & Noble etc.

However the primary method of distribution for these books have been as giveaways from the health professional to their patients. As an added bonus, these books can also be customized in order to boost brand awareness, promote the practice, advertise products and much more.

I look upon the “Herb Interaction” book as a “quickie” for my pharmacy team, no need to get bogged down on the computer.
David (pharmacist) Ontario
The book on “foot ulcers” spoke to me, I now understand the importance of foot care.
Janice. (Caregiver) Akron Ohio
We forget sometimes the power of the patient for healing through compliance and self care habits. We should provide understandable information.
Philip (Physician) Pittsburgh, Pensylvania
The Dr’ Guide books were a great door opener and relationship builder with the allergy medical team. Our reps loved them.
Alex (Product Manager), New Jersey.
We had the highest BRC (business Reply Card) return rate of all time – it built up great customer goodwill and easier repeat calls.
Joe (Sales Manager) Pennsylvania
The distribution of the Dr. Guide books was the most cost effective, most quickly integrated and best ROI program I have had in years – no committee development meetings, no sky high “creative” costs and so appropriate for our product / treatment messages.
