I thoroughly enjoyed reading ER Doctor. Dr. Paul Weinberg’s stories are intriguing, insightful, and inspiring. His meaningful experiences over 30 years will have you rethinking how you understand healthcare and the ER

ER Doctor is a wonderful peek into the personal life of a straight-talking ER physician, Paul Weinberg. Dr Weinberg recounts some of his most memorable cases with precision and a dearth of adjectives. His fascinating array of cases range from headaches that turned out to be more; sodomy; finding a Twinkie wrapper in the fat folds of a 600 lb. woman; diagnosing the rare disease botulism, to patching up gunshot wounds. Being comprehensive, a few patients who sadly died before or when bought to the ER are included. Anyone who wants a real look into the practice of ER medicine, or into actual ER cases, should read this book.

A page turner; I’m sure you will enjoy the read.
