Dr. Topal makes news with digital medicine book

A new book by Scripps Health Chief Academic Officer Eric Topol, MD is generating a good bit of buzz among national media outlets.

“The Patient Will See You Now” was formally released this week as a follow-up to Dr. Topol’s well received title, “The Creative Destruction of Medicine.”

“There’s a new mentality building around mobile devices,” he told the U-T San Diego. “People are saying, ‘I want what I want, when I want it, where I want it,’ whether it’s summoning a car, it’s groceries being delivered to my home or pressing a smartphone app and getting to see a doctor.”
