Title: One doctor : close calls, cold cases, and the mysteries of medicine
Dr. Reilly describes his personal medical care (including a stint at Chicago’s Cook County Hospital, the setting and inspiration for the TV show, “E.R.”). He also relates case histories of patients he has cared for. His stories are succinct and interesting, interspersed with his opinions on our current healthcare system. On occasion, he’ll use medical terminology and jargon, but fear not – he explains everything thoroughly. It’s an entertaining read that provides food for thought.
