More About Dr. David Wilcox author of How To Avoid Being a Victim of the American Healthcare System: A Patient's Handbook for Survival

Order How To Avoid Being a Victim of the American Healthcare System: A Patient's Handbook for SurvivalDr. David Wilcox was born and raised in Syracuse NY. One of his earliest memories was of his grandmother telling him that he would be a doctor one day. It didn’t appear that he was following the correct path to that dream as he dropped out of high school and left home at 15 years old. After a failed first marriage that produced a special needs child, Dr. Wilcox knew without a doubt he wanted to be a caregiver. This led him to get his licensed practical nurse (LPN) certification and began his journey into the medical profession. Over the years Dr. Wilcox was a kidney/pancreas transplant nurse as well as an intensive care unit nurse, and emergency department nurse. Later he moved to North Carolina and journeyed into nursing management and became a nursing supervisor while obtaining his bachelor’s degree in nursing and master’s degree in health administration. He also studied patient throughput or the movement of patients in a hospital and became a patient throughput director. In this role he spoke at many Institute of Healthcare Improvement (IHI) conferences on the creative ways he found to ensure patients being admitted had open beds to go to. Later seeing an opportunity in healthcare information technology (IT) Dr. Wilcox joined a healthcare IT company where he obtained his Lean Six Sigma Black Belt (LSSBB) certification and his doctorate becoming a thought leader in efficient ways to care for patients using technology and clinical buy-in. This journey led him to create this book to reach patients and empower them with the knowledge to better partner with their health care providers. 

Dr. Wilcox continues to reside in North Carolina with his wife of 21 years Eva and his three dogs. Being fond of dog rescues, the couple has two English Setters Koni and Ezra, and a beagle rat terrier mix Eleanor Rose. The author can be reached at drdavidwilcox.com.
