Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“A gorgeously written primer for anyone who has ever been (or ever will be) a patient . . . The book soars.” —The San Diego Union-Tribune

Jamie Weisman was a patient long before she was a doctor. She was born with a rare defect in her immune system that leaves her prey to a range of ailments and crises and that, because it is treatable but not curable, will keep her a patient for life. In this probing and inspiring book, she brings her sojourns on both sides of the doctor-patient divide to bear on the issues of the flesh that preoccupy us all. It is a worthy addition to the best that has been written about our physical selves, a meditation on our extraordinary powers of healing and the limitations that leave intact the miracle and tragedy of being.

About the Author

Jamie Weisman, M.D., practices medicine near Atlanta, Georgia, where she lives with her husband and their daughter.
