About Peter Yellowlees

I am a psychiatrist living in Sacramento. I work at the University of California and enjoy teaching, writing and research. I have treated patients using the internet and telemedicine for over a decade, and am very interested in how patients can use the internet effectively to improve their health. I am English originally, then lived in Australia for 20 years, before moving to the USA 5 years ago. My interests are sports and fitness, reading, politics and spending time with my wife, Barb, and our "furry daughter", Lucy, who is a cavalier king charles spaniel who thinks she is human.

Review by: Juby J on Feb. 13, 2010 :
This book is a very well written, comprehensive view of the changing face of healthcare driven by the widening influence of the internet, especially in the most populous parts of the world. The book makes the reader think whether he/she is ready for the evolution in healthcare. Dr. Peter Yellowlees is in an elite league that blends the view of a healthcare practitioner, leading academician, technology evangelist and visionary.

Review by: George Angus on April 03, 2009 :
This ebook is highly informative and takes us through a plausible premise regarding the use of an E-doctor.

There is a great discussion by this MD, and it is not too technical for the lay person.

If you are interested at all in how the internet is affecting medicine, then this is a good read.
