Publisher's Summary

What’s often overlooked is that the simple conversation between doctor and patient can be as potent an analgesic as many treatments we prescribe.
"The Conversation Placebo" is from the January 20, 2017 Opinion section of The New York Times. It was written by Danielle Ofri and narrated by Keith Sellon-Wright.
