Overview

From The Bedside To The Hmo by Dr. Robert Whiting

This is the story of how a young high school student, through a quirk of fate, begins walking down a path that leads him to become a rural family doctor in Montana.

Having served a close-knit community for fifty years Dr. Robert Whiting recounts a story of a diphtheria outbreak, some interesting cancer outcomes, and several cases requiring difficult decision making.

In this personal account, you'll learn what the medical textbooks can't teach you:

• How changes in medicine have directly affected practitioners
• The bond a small-town doctor forges with his community
• Creative ways to dealing with ailments
• The effects of malpractice charges on the profession
• And much more!

You'll also follow Dr. Whiting-a sportsman, musician, and a husband-outside the profession. Somehow, he manages all those roles as he successfully carries out his practice. Take a closer look into just how he did it, and learn how changes in medicine have affected practitioners in From the Bedside to the HMO: A Doctor's Journey.

This book was written by a friend that I went to High School and College with in the 1950s. He is now retired from general practice. He tells the story of medicine as I witnessed it in my lifetime. He is so competent. I have recommended this book to all the medical friends that I have had through years and all have reported pleasure in reading it. It is a great book especially for readers from Texas and Montana.
