Dr. House Isn’t the Only Doctor/Detective
Retired physician, Dr. Clifton Meador, authors a book about solving true medical mysteries.
Dr. Meador has written a number of medical books through the years, but this one contains the most bizarre cases he has encountered in his career. This book is composed of 19 baffling, real-life medical cases. And of course, it contains the ways in which he, and in some cases, his colleagues, solved them.
This actual doctor solves medical cases, and saves life. And he doesn’t have an obnoxious attitude! Dr. Clifton Meador’s approach to diagnostic medicine involves a careful attention to detail, and a practice of empathy and compassion towards his patients.
If you loved the Dr. House tv series, you will love True Medical Detective Stories. Contrary to Hollywood’s somewhat comical representation of the medical field, this book presents the facts as they should be – often humorous, but mostly heavy and despairing.
Dr. Meador has written a number of medical books through the years, but this one contains the most bizarre cases he has encountered in his career. This book is composed of 19 baffling, real-life medical cases. And of course, it contains the ways in which he, and in some cases, his colleagues, solved them. The details presented in these cases, except for the patients’ names, are solid facts. Moreover, the cases presented involve Dr. Meador’s actual patients.
Despite the highly advanced technologies bestowed upon the medical field, a great doctor can solve a perplexing problem with a good ear, and great instincts. Dr. Meador believes that the oldest tool of the medical profession – careful listening – is just as important as clinical deduction and medical expertise.
The book is written in an educational and entertaining tone, thus following Berton Roueché’s popularized form of medical-detective stories. Like his predecessor, True Medical Detective Stories has been receiving great feedback on Amazon. And it has a brilliant, noteworthy review from Kirkus – “The author’s suspenseful, Sherlock Homes-esque retelling of each case will keep the pages turning.”
Without a doubt, this book will benefit the professionals in the medical field. However, this book wasn’t written for the medical field alone. Even if you’re not familiar with the medical jargons, reading this book won’t leave you confused and worn-out. Anyone who wishes to learn how doctors go about the diagnostic process can find it in True Medical Detective Stories. So, brace yourselves for compelling and informative medical stories!
