Meet Barry Ladd. He is a family physician who practiced medicine for thirty years in a small country town, forty miles south of a major city. He calls it "Our Town," because the residents, including himself, so personally identified with the community.
In the thirty years that Ladd practiced in "Our Town," he delivered fifteen hundred babies and had one hundred and eighty thousand office visits. He delivered the babies of the babies, and took care of four generations in the same family.
During that time, there was an explosion of technology and scientific information. The practice of medicine shifted from being more of an art to being more of a science.
During this time, Ladd was a participant and observer. He saw how personal events and decisions played out over time. He tells his readers what he saw, heard, and felt. These are all true stories. Some are composites of several people. The names have been changed.
