Description

Everyone knows someone who has been abused by a doctor and this book, a moving true story, is about the devastating impact of sexual abuse and one woman's steely determination to recover and find justice. Sky Curtis is a successful writer who goes to her family doctor for anxiety resulting from childhood trauma. Like many vulnerable women in doctors' offices, she is horrifically abused, emotionally and sexually. And, like many women who are abused by their doctors, she loses her career, friends, savings, religion, family relationships, and her mind. She almost loses her life. After her roller coaster recovery from the dark wells of fear, pain and madness, she reports the doctor. She then encounters infuriating prejudice against women in the legal system and the media. Despite this, Sky triumphs at many levels, winning in an arena where women rarely do, consequently getting back all that she had lost, plus more; a sense of self. Doctored is a sometimes hilarious and sometimes enraging story woven together with compellingly poetic images. This book will help the many women who have suffered doctor abuse. It will also help others understand the impact of this awful betrayal of trust. Doctored is a bold and important book that breaks through the protective barriers surrounding the medical profession.
