DESCRIPTION OF CONTENT: This is the story of everything that happens to -- and a lot that runs through the mind of -- John Galen, M. D., as he darts from patient to patient in the office, ER, operating room, home, and kidney dialysis suite during his day and night on duty. Patients come and go, but two special cases dominate the narrative drive. Written in the first person and present tense, it is derived from the 40-year experience of the author, William Waters, M. D., who is also the son of - and father of - doctors.
