Doctor Confidential-Secrets Behind the Veil-Richard Sheff M.D.
The stories of his patients were uplifting as well as heartbreaking. His personal struggles are documented as he goes through medical school, internship, and residency on his way to becoming a family practice doctor. He is tired, sometimes confused and always compassionate. His love for the people he cares for shines through with each story, and this love threatens to break his spirit.
His initial idea was to go into psychiatry, but when he heard the phrase "what does love have to do with it?" he changes his path. Every doctor should have his compassion.
Every patient deserves a doctor like Dr. Sheff. Someone who cares for medicine, and someone who is not afraid to care for his patients, on a personal level.
I recommend this book to anyone who is considering a career in medicine, and anyone who is a patient.(and isn't that all of us at one time or another?)
I received this book from Rebecca at The Cadence Group for review. Thank You!!
