Summary, etc.:
"A first-person narrative that takes readers inside the medical profession as one doctor solves real-life medical mysteries"--Provided by publisher.
Reilly takes us to the front lines of medicine today. As his patients and their families survive close calls, struggle with heartrending decisions, and confront the limits of medicine's power to cure, he lays bare a fragmented, depersonalized, business-driven health-care system where real caring is hard to find. Reilly provides a hopeful, inspiring account of medicine's potential to improve people's lives, his own quest to understand the "truth" about doctoring, and a moving testament to the difference one doctor can make.
