Medical Wisdom and Doctoring: the Art of 21st Century Practice is a guide to making better healers. This conversational book presents not just clinical maxims and precepts supported by current studies, but also historical anecdotes and tales of actual patients and their illnesses. Robert B. Taylor, MD is the author and editor of more than two dozen medical books and a veteran of both rural solo practice and chairmanship of an academic medical school department. This book contains lessons learned from his own experiences, as well as the legacy of medical giants including Hippocrates, Moses Maimonides, Edward Jenner, John Snow and Marie Curie. This book contains practical advice—such as how best to test for diabetic neuropathy and the possible significance of childhood nasal polyps—as well as inspirational guidance to nurture the idealism that drives people to choose medicine as a profession. Medical Wisdom and Doctoring challenges its readers to seek excellence in the daily practice of medicine and should be read by physicians, residents, medical students and all those who provide patient care.
