Five Star Review - Maki Thomas Livesay

"A collection of chapters that takes you on a journey through life, travel, medicine, and experiences. Just like talking with a friend who happens to be an accomplished medical doctor. There is something for everyone to be able to relate to. Thank you so much for such a wonderful read! With the stresses of daily life (and who doesn't have them), ending on a note about tolerance and patience was exactly what I needed!"

"My daughter gave me this book to commemorate my retirement. Having been in good health, I seldom made close contact with doctors, except annual check-up...I was happily surprised finding Dr. Mark, a well-trained and highly respected physician, writing about women's health in a very friendly tone, her genuine warmth dotted with humor on various topics as if she was having conversation with us in a room. How could I refuse the book started with Hair Dye and the Killer Bra (Chapter Two)... Chapters cover sex/gender-based health, pandemics, medical myth to (female) veteran's health and medical issues while mixing stories of her own personal and professional experiences, all the while keeping the today's social and political environment in the background. The book made me aware of the importance of maintaining my good health in a more conscious way...I highly [sic] recommend Stellar Medicine to women of all ages and various backgrounds."

"I've given this book to friends and family, it's so good. In today's highly polarized climate about so many issues it is refreshing to read her unabashedly progressive stances on women's choices and lifestyles."
