Patient by Patient: Lessons in Love, Loss, Hope, and Healing from a Doctor's Practice Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Emily Transue earned her credentials in medical school, but learns lessons of a different kind when she embarks on private practice. Her patients, some delightful, some difficult, all come to her for medical advice but, they are not the only ones gaining from the experience. As Dr. Transue guides them through routine exams and life-challenging crises she learns much about life and death, hope and fear and being the physician she wants to be. These lessons carry over into her personal life as she struggles with heartwrenching illness and loss in her own family. Throughout, she is a keen observer of her patients, their families, and their lives.

Emily R. Transue, M.D., author of On Call, is a native of Toledo, Ohio, and a graduate of Yale College and Dartmouth Medical School.  She did her residency and chief residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Washington, Seattle.  She works as a general internist at a multispecialty group in Seattle, and is a clinical Assistant Professor at the University of Washington.  She received the Providence-Seattle Medical Center Outstanding Educator of the Year award in 2003, and is a Fellow of the American College of Physicians.  She has also published stories and poems in JAMA, Dartmouth Medicine, and elsewhere.

Patient by Patient is the memoir of a young doctor, fresh from residency, as she explores the joys and frustrations of beginning her medical practice. As she strives to help her patients face a range of challenges from the humorous to the profoundly devastating, she learns that while medical school gave her an M.D., treating patients has made her a doctor.
 
At the same time she is working with her patients, she is struggling with illness in her own family. Through her shifting perspectives of doctor, daughter, and granddaughter, she contends with the process of dying, the experience of grief, and the buoyancy of the human spirit.
 
The sources of Transue's knowledge about love, loss, hope, and healing are not medical texts or professors, but the patients she treats and gets to know—those she helps to wellness and those she must let go.
"Doctors and patients seeking renewal, inspiration, laughter, and wisdom will find them all in this deftly written book."—Rita Charon, M.D., Ph.D., Professor of Clinical Medicine and Director of the Program in Narrative Medicine, Columbia University
 
"An intimate portrait of the doctor-patient relationship. Emily Transue offers insightful and engaging reflections on the interplay of health and illness."—Danielle Ofri, M.D., Ph.D., author of Incidental Findings, Editor-in-Chief, Bellevue Literary Review

"Another memorable collection of medical stories and essays from young physician Transue. . . . With her second perceptive memoir, Transue claims a solid place in the growing ranks of doctors who write well."Kirkus Reviews
