Publisher's Summary

One of Shondaland's Best Books of April 2022!

Behind the chic veneer of a wellness clinic lies a dangerous secret, in this compelling women's fiction novel from the author of The White Coat Diaries.

Dr. Maya Rao is a gynecologist trying to balance a busy life. With three young children, a career, and a happy marriage, she should be grateful—on paper, she has it all. But after a disastrous encounter with an entitled patient, Maya is forced to walk away from the city hospital where she’s spent her entire career.

An opportunity arises when Maya crosses paths with Amelia DeGilles at a school meeting. Amelia is the owner and entrepreneur behind Eunoia Women’s Health, a concierge wellness clinic that specializes in house calls for its clientele of wealthy women for whom no vitamin infusion or healing crystal is too expensive. All Eunoia needs is a gynecologist to join its ranks.

Amid visits to her clients’ homes, Maya comes to idolize the beautiful, successful Amelia. But Amelia’s life isn’t as perfect as it seems. When Amelia’s teenaged daughter is struck with a mysterious ailment, Maya must race to uncover the reason before it’s too late. In the process, she risks losing what’s most important to her and bringing to light a secret of her own that she’s been desperately trying to keep hidden.

Fun story illuminating the wellness industry

I listened to the audio of “At Least You Have Your Health” by Madi Sinha and narrated by Sooneela Nankani. Ms. Nankani did the story justice.

This is an interesting women’s fiction story. It begins with our protagonist, Maya Rao, working in a physician’s office as a gynecologist. She used to be an OBGYN but dropped the obstetrics for a mysterious reason which is later revealed. The medical group Maya works for is a very misogynistic group. I thought sexism would be the prevailing message, but I was wrong.

Maya is a busy woman with three very young children and a husband who is working on his PhD while teaching at a university. Trying to balance being a mother and being the major bread winner for the family is stressful for Maya. When an entitled woman comes to Maya with outrageous demands, she quits.

Maya’s oldest daughter goes to a private school, and at a school meeting Maya meets Amelia DeGilles who is the owner of Eunoia Woman’s Health, which is a concierge wellness clinic for women. House calls are required, but Maya makes her own hours. Too good to be true? Well, Maya finds herself in an ethical quandary when she discovers the “wellness” piece of the clinic is a bit too new-agey for her. Women are told to use healing crystals to “balance” their bodies/feeling/organs etc. Want to guess where a crystal ends up? So, this is story that makes fun of the Wellness Industry, illuminating where medical science is being ignored in an attempt to find more “holistic” ways to heal. Yes, the Wellness Industry has gotten out of hand (can anyone say “Goop” without chuckling?). I’d love to blame the women, for example the Goop francize, but even the men have fallen victim. Just last week, Fox News commentator Tucker Carlson suggested that exposing male genitalia to red light will raise testosterone levels. Yep, Tucker wants the men of America to tan their “goods” for higher testosterone levels.

But I digress. As Maya becomes more enmeshed in Eunonia and the clientele, she finds herself fighting against health misinformation. Her issues come to a head with the daughter of a Congressman who has an incredibly crazy birth plan. Do people like this really exist? Well, author Madi Sinha had some fun with dreaming up some whacky wealthy characters.

Given the past few years of the pandemic craze, and the absurd quick fixes that were purported (can anyone say bleach?) it is no wonder that this book is timely. Snake oil salesmen have been here forever, and the public continues to welcome them with open arms.

This was a fun and engaging listen.
