Description

Saddle up and ride to rugged West Texas to meet a young doctor just starting his practice! Stand by his side in the ER as he diagnoses and treats patients with heart attacks, collapsed lungs, meningitis, seizures, and other emergencies. Whether inserting a breathing tube or spinal needle, delivering electric shocks, searching for cancer on X-rays or telling stories to his two young daughters at night, Dr. Mathur's heartwarming and occasionally hilarious stories depict human relationships at many levels. The new doctor on the prairie is also a husband, a father, a neighbor, and an immigrant.

The first year of practice is critical for all doctors, rocked by anxiety and fear. The love and support of family and patients makes it possible to persevere and overcome these challenges. These stories portray a doctor's life at its best and its worst, and show the personal toll of practicing medicine as well as the many rewards of working in an underserved hospital. This biography reveals that, though medicine is indeed demanding and difficult, a little humor, compassion, and humility makes it fulfilling and inspiring.
