The Title of my book, 'FULL TIME DOCTORS AN ENDANGERED SPECIES:
All Physician MD's Are Now Specialists,' while very valid, is perhaps somewhat
misleading to some for the following reasons:
It is a fifty year history of the development of the Medical Specialist, and the role of the General Practitioner of medicine, from the experience of an eighty-year-old
Physician MD, who continued his medical education and his license to practice. The chapters are diversified dealing with the Art and the Practice of Medicine and emphasizing how experience creates the very best Physicians. A reviewer
recommended it be required reading for medical students as well as pre-med and graduate MD's, and yet it is written so that a layperson can easily comprehend.
It is all non-fiction with chapters on fascinating, complex and very interesting medical cases, with opinions and beliefs based on experience. Some chapters
are Allergy To What?; Anemia First Diagnosis; Antibiotic Use; Aphorisms and Humor; Arteriosclerosis; Arthritis; Cradle To Grave; My knowledge on Abortion;
Genetics; Gynecology; Obstetrics; Pediatrics; Rare Cancer and More Psychiatry;
Sudden Death; Tuberculosis; Unusual Infections; Vaccines, and much more.
