Patience With Patients

We were rushing in, alongside Maria Shriver, down the long corridor on the second floor of the grand old Beverly Hills Library to the auditorium to cheer a friend, “The Physician to the Stars” — per People magazine — Dr.Gary Gitnick. The tribute was for “Getting Well, Staying Well,” the latest of his 62 books. But Dr. Gary Gitnick’s patients (and patience) go far beyond “stars” as those who have received his charities (medical and otherwise) can attest. And this night, while California’s First Lady Maria and showbizness’ singular statesman, Sidney Poitier were on hand to tribute Gitnick’s newest book, the SRO auditorium was made up of people seeking to learn something from him and his book,”Getting Well, Staying Well — Everything You Need to Know to Get the Best Medical Treatment.” And Gitnick made it painless as he relayed stories illustrating some of those who’ve proven it.

The book ($19.95, Phoenix) is only 124 pages — each one is amazingly relevant to every one you — or I — know and, of course, whom Gitnick knows — and treats. I’m sure Gitnick’s book notes were also readily recognized by the library audience members including L.A. Police Chief William Bratton and actress-wife Ricki Kleiman, plus Wiliam Morris Agency president Jim Wiatt…And just your average book-lover…
