Item Description...
Viewing13 medical cases through the eyes of two physicians during their internships and throughout their careers,this examination of Western medicine arguesthatdoctors need to learn to dealmore effectively and sensitively with medical and non-medical patient needs.Particular attention is paidto the knowledge doctors can gain from listening to their patients, and how that wisdom can be applied to help that patientas well asothers.Anecdotes illustrate the wisdom of asking for help from colleagues, the role thatintuition can play, and the positive power of hope.
"The doctor is seized by fear and runs as fast as he can from his hospital office to the MRI suite a few hundreds yards away. If he doesn't get there in time and stop the imaging test, his tattooed patient will likely die---and his fine medical reputation will be in jeopardy."

That's only one true story in this riveting book about the lessons two accomplished doctors learned from their patients. Life lessons. Life and death lessons. Lessons they never learned in medical school.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Heart warming   Jan 27, 2008
I learned about this book after reading about Dr Castaldo's son's accident in Catholic Digest. I ordered the book and once I started reading the book I couldn't put it down. A must read book. I'm passing it on to my daughter who is going into the medical field. It renews one's faith in doctors who really do care. Lorraine Schoedler, Allentown, PA
Well spent time  Oct 31, 2007
Excellent reading, should be required for any one entering the medical profession. These stories explain why we go into medicine
great book  Sep 19, 2007
I bought this book after reading an excerpt of the story about David in Catholic Digest. This is a very enjoyable book and definitely should be read by health care providers.

Definitely worth reading!  May 8, 2007
I must caution readers that this review may be biased - Dr. John Castaldo has been a close personal friend for over 20 years.

To me the book is more than stories of love, faith and healing. It's the story of two human beings who, as they become more skilled as physicians, struggle to become more human, in a profession that is simultaneously life-and-death, and often dehumanizing.

I visited John daily while his son David was in the hospital. I remember the hundreds of cuts on David's body, and the grief expressed by John and his family. But I also remember his determination that David would recover.

This is not a superstar ("look at all the great things I did") type of book. There are successes mixed with sadness, and perhaps failures. But that is the human drama of life. The book is worth buying and reading.
Doctors Learn From Their Patients  Mar 24, 2007
In this book, two neurologists recall memorable cases in their practices and events in their personal lives where their patients taught them valuable lessons about life. The stories reveal very human and humorous aspects of these eminent physicians' personalities. Some of the accounts are sad, others almost incredible, and still others will have you chuckling and shaking your head. In many chapters, the spotlight shines on the patients - not on the doctors. This is a unique book with stories you will want to share with family and friends.
