DOCTOR -- HERE'S YOUR HAT

The general practitioner tells his story in this instance and at the same time presents cogent reasons why the family doctor should still have a place in the medical picture. Every sort of case comes to him, and the book is full of case histories, done from a medical slant, but with the sort of appeal for the books on the country doctor rather than the city specialist. There are good bits of writing, good stories, all told with a ring of authenticity and honesty -- but there is nothing particularly new either in his background or experiences. An Australian, he came to this country to study medicine, became a country doctor's assistant, took over a practice in Iowa, where knowledge, intuition and psychology all played their parts in his work. Later, when he set up shop in Chicago, he came up against the competition of the specialists -- hence the thesis of his book.
