Medicine & Law

MD Mentor was founded by a 5th generation physician and attorney, who by virtue of training and experience in both professions, is uniquely qualified to assist physicians experiencing the stress of any kind of litigation.


Here are additional helpful publications and resources we have found:

physician stress
How to Survive a Medical Malpractice Suit
by Ilene Brenner 2010 is a very recent, well written book on the subject by a knowledgeable authority.  See my review at Amazon by clicking on the image.

physician stress

Adverse Events, Stress and Litigation by Charles and Frisch is the best book yet written concerning the effects of bad outcomes and litigation on physicians.  See other reviews at Amazon by clicking on the image.

My comparative review of both of these books can be found here.  The principal co-author of this book, Sara Charles, MD is the “grandmother of all awareness” about litigation stress.  View an excellent new video made by Sara Charles referencing the phenomenon and her related website .  For a fascinating look at the author’s own history, see The Defendant: A Psychiatrist on Trial for Medical Malpractice.

If you know of or find other additional resources for physicians undergoing litigation, please help us grow this site by providing feedback!  Thanks.
