I Really Didn't Want to Become a Doctor : Tales and Musings from a Family Doc Retired After 50-Plus Years, Paperback / softback Book

I Really Didn't Want to Become a Doctor : Tales and Musings from a Family Doc Retired After 50-Plus Years Paperback / softback

Description

This book traces memoirs of a family doctor who shunned the notion of becoming a physician as he observed his family doctor father while growing up.

To spend so many years in school-only to have meals, sleep, and vacations interrupted by needy patients-offered no allure.

Not until his third year of college did he make the career choice, and his tale traverses his experiences from college, medical school, internship, U.S.

Navy, to practicing in Colorado. His story includes abundant patient anecdotes, plus his take on racism, medical malpractice, and health reform.

Dr. Wolf's humanism is evident throughout, and is evidenced by the fact that the royalties from his book will go to a Boulder County low-income clinic he helped found in 1977.
