Publisher Comments:

"LIVELY, EARTHY, AND REFRESHINGLY CANDID . . . Losee is the family doctor you wish you had in your community."
--Library Journal
In 1949, Ron Losee, a young Yale Medical School graduate, headed west with his wife and small daughter to begin the practice of medicine. They settled in Ennis, Montana, in a log cabin that also became their office and lab. Patients made themselves at home in the living room. One small bag held all their medical equipment. It was a proud moment when a patient first called Losee "Doc." His fee on that occasion was three dollars.
In robust, freewheeling prose, Doc Losee--now internationally known for his work in orthopedic surgery--shares nearly half a century of dedicated doctoring, evoking the rich flavor of Montana and the dramatic dilemmas that never cease to haunt the country doctor. Exhilarating and entertaining, DOC is a moving reminder of what people--doctors and patients--can be and do. It's the perfect cure for what ails us.
"[Losee] charges each incident with enough drama to draw the reader in. . . . The humor shines right through. . . . Get this guy to a biochemist and have him cloned. . . . As a physician we could use a few more thousand just like him."
--Kirkus Reviews
