The Doctor Will See You Now is a quirky and eclectic collection of short pieces that explore the evolving patient-physician relationship; famous doctors and notorious patients; surprising hospital practices and the future of health care; medical reporting, research, ethics, drugs, and money; and the brave new world of neurology.
