What an excellent read! This is not a story of resentment. This is a story of an individual questioning their own history and the impact that has on him, not just his health, but how he responds to ALL PATIENTS! All humans should question their attitudes towards others, and hopefully become more patient and accepting. Cultural awareness, competence is something we all need to practice and this book gives us insight to how we can do this.

As a Black man beginning medical school in a few months, this book has truly served as anecdotal evidence of how important physician-patient interactions driven by cultural competency and trust are. Dr. Tweedy uses an amazing writing style to capture the hearts and minds of his audience. Every chapter increased my interest in his story, in his experiences.

I assumed there would be bravado involved as in Dr. Black's and Dr. Carson's respective books, but NO, I was pleasantly surprised.

Amazing read for anyone, especially those entering a health profession!

A recent event happened in my city when a law professor dressed, in blackface, as Damon Tweedy, her favorite author, for a Halloween party. Naturally I wanted to read the book to see why he was one of her favorites. I liked his story, found the anecdotes very thought provoking but expected more because of the incident at the university. It's an easy read, and having grown up in the South I've seen some of what Tweedy describes. But the book did cause me to do some self-reflections.

This book is a must read for anyone pursuing a career in medicine or is interested in the field. If you enjoyed works by Atul Gawande or Abraham Verghese you will also love this book. I found that this book covers many pertinent topics in medicine that you will not hear about in your "traditional" pre-medical classes. It is enlightening.

This book has a message of inequality which is too important to ignore or forget. That said, the writer sometimes falls into the trap of unnecessary repetetiveness, which wears the reader down. Still, the message lives a life of its own, and so the book can never be a waste of time.

I thought this book offered an insightful and balanced view. Thought provoking, but not preachy; honest but not muck-raking. As a white lower-middle class male whose grandparents were immigrants, it gave me a view into a world I know little about. Not just because the author is a black man in a predominately white field, but also as a young doctor from a poorer background entering a field dominated by people who come from upper-middle class families.

I heard Dr Tweedy speak at the Decatur Book Festival in Georgia a few days ago (he said it was his first time speaking at a book fair) and was inspired to buy the book. Part memoir and part discussion of bias in medicine, it is truly an eye-opener (though if you think about it, it should not be) into the way doctors often make snap judgments about their patients. For instance, he found that doctors were quicker to prescribe drugs for their poor black patients, rather than suggest lifestyle changes because they already were assuming that "people like that" wouldn't change their diet or exercise. Dr. Tweedy even found these kinds of biases residing within himself. He also discusses the challenges of our health care system, his own journey through medical school and his own experiences with prejudice, both from patients and other doctors. He also points out that you can't put all the blame on the system and the doctor for your poor health -- people have to take responsibility for their wellbeing too. The book was very well written and I highly recommend it.

Most interesting. The author opens the curtains on our country's racial bias. Hopefully, it will be widely read. Besides being timely and educational, it is a good read. I enjoyed it and highly recommend it.

In this powerful and emotionally-moving memoir, the author explores his personal and professional experience to begin a broader examination of the true health impact of systemic bias. It is both approachable and shocking. Readers will be humbled by the world Dr. Tweedy shows them in the world of medicine. The relevance of this dialogue cannot be emphasized enough. With recent media attention to the lived experience of black men and women in our society, a number of questions have naturally arisen that at times seem impossible to answer. Why is it so different being black in America, and why do we feel ill-equipped to discuss systemic racism? Whether you are a scholar of critical race theory or someone who has never considered race in America, this valuable book begins to answer that question in a vivid, pressing, and humane way. Dr. Tweedy has started an essential dialogue for health care providers. I look forward to his future books and authorship.

Black Man in a White Coat is Damon Tweedy’s memoir of his experience as a black man getting into medical school up through becoming a practicing physician. At the very beginning of medical school, one of his professors mistook him for a maintenance worker even though he was dressed nicely and had been in his class for a month. Tweedy recounts his embarrassment, even though it was the professor who should have been embarrassed. He also talks about the mixed emotions he felt about a form of affirmative action being one of the reasons that he was admitted to Duke medical school.

Once he starts interacting with patients, he has a variety of experiences related to race that make him aware of the issues that both black doctors and black patients face. Some of them aren’t too surprising (although still horrible), like the white patient who didn’t want a black doctor. Some were very surprising to me. For instance, he encountered a black patient who didn’t want a black doctor. Tweedy backs up his personal examples with research that shows whatever issues he encounters exist on a larger scale. They are not isolated incidents experienced only by him.

Tweedy writes about medical information in an accessible manner with a conversational tone. My eyes were opened to race related issues in the medical field that I hadn’t previously considered. This is a great memoir that I highly recommend.
