More Poems from Both Sides of the Fence: Experiences of a Disabled Physician in Medicine Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

These short, accessible poems describe the experiences of the author as a practicing internist and (later) psychiatrist. Some allude to the responses of patients to a physician with an obvious physical disability. Others describe the reactions of patients to illness, injury, and death.

Some of the poems are funny, some angry, some sad. Reading them has been likened to eating potato chips: “You can’t eat just one.”
