MEDICINE FROM THE HEART is a skillfully-woven collection of essays written by an author who has spent the last two decades practicing medicine in rural America. Dr. Remakus uses the real-life experiences of patients and health care providers to analyze contemporary health care issues as well as age-old medical problems. In doing so, he convincingly demonstrates the value of a traditional doctor-patient relationship and its place in modern society. MEDICINE FROM THE HEART is a guided tour through contemporary medicine with stopovers at the homes of some interesting patients and health care providers. The stories are powerful, the messages insightful, and the effects as varied as the entire range of human emotion. From cover to cover, this book will make you think, feel, understand, care, and rejoice in the power of the human spirit.Reviews:DR. KEVIN C. RILEY, clinical psychologist and faculty member, Temple University School of Medicine and La Salle University: "MEDICINE FROM THE HEART is a reflection of medicine that captures the spirit of the doctor-patient relationship and reveals the humanity still possible in modern medicine. It should be required reading for every health care professional."DR. AGNES CARDONI, author and faculty member, Wilkes University and King's College: "I have used Dr. Remakus's intelligent, compassionate, and articulate essays for my courses in 'Literature and Medicine.'
