Tell It to Me Straight, Doc is his debut book that exemplifies his career-long dedication to respecting the old-fashioned, patient-centered principles of the art of medicine. In the years of his practice, he has witnessed the work of well-liked and competent doctors, but grew concerned as he noticed colleagues spending hardly five minutes with their patients. By writing Tell It to Me Straight, Doc, Dr. Celestin hopes that patients will gain the courage, knowledge, and agency they need to have crucial conversations with their doctors.

Tell It to Me Straight, Doc is a comprehensive yet conversational guide to developing the autonomy needed to protect your health. Dr. Celestin has written this book for anyone who has ever left a doctor's office wanting a better explanation, for anyone who's ever been rushed through a visit, and for anyone who feels bogged down with constant medications and tests but no real solution. He uses his wealth of experience to share insight on many of the most common medical problems we all faceā€”in an understandable way. Tell It to Me Straight, Doc is a must-read for anyone who wants to finally have an active voice in conversations about their health.
