A Wall Street Journal Top-10 Best Seller in 2014 & 2015 and an Amazon "All-Star" "Medicine Men" is the follow-on to "Heart in the Right Place." Both books are Wall Street Journal bestsellers. It's n extraordinary collection of the most memorable moments from old-school rural physicians who each practiced medicine for more than 50 years in the Southern Appalachian Mountains. It contains hilarious, heroic, and heartwarming true stories of miracle cures, ghost dogs, and much madcap medical mayhem.

This seems more a series of very short stories all on the topic of practicing medicine in the Appalachians. There is some attempt to group similar topics together but most chapters center on one story or one particular topic.

I found it interesting but there was not an attempt to segue between each chapter so sometimes, to me, it seemed there was a disconnect as I ended one chapter and started the next.

These doctors (mostly men) treated patients often with little or no backup from medical specialties, often far away from hospitals, sometimes with no hope of payment. There was community. These doctors knew their patients--sometimes knew generations within the family. The focus was more on the person than it is in today's medicine. ( )

Comprised of numerous reminiscences from multiple country doctors preferring to practice in the backwoods of Appalachia from the 1920's till fairly recently. With minimal alterations, the incidents could be backwoods NSW, Minnesota/Wisconsin, or Alberta. But then, I've been a nurse since the Revolutionary War (or at least the reenactments). I absolutely loved it!
For some idiotic reason this Whispersync has been hiding in my TBR pile since March 2016!
Carey Jones is perfect as narrator. ( )

Great stories about the encounters of rural doctors. I laughed out loud at several stories and saw some family members in a few of the stories, too. ( )

Medicine Men: Extreme Appalachian Doctoring. Carolyn Jourdan. 2012. Jourdan is also the author of Heart in the Right Place, a memoir in which she describes her return home to replace her mother as the receptionist in her father’s hectic rural medical office. And this title consists of true stories told to her by physicians who lived and worked in rural East Tennessee. The story of heroic doctors treating proud, stubborn, uneducated people has been told before, and there is nothing really special about the book. I did enjoy reading about East Tennessee, the changes brought to the area by TVA, and places I have seen. I finished the book in two hour and a half sessions at the gym. So if you need a short book ( )

This was a delightful book. A series of short stories, a lot of humor. Amazing circumstances. I highly recommend Carolyn Jourdan's earlier book Heart in the Right Place. It is her own story and has a more personal feel. Both are remarkable. I hope she keeps writing. ( )

At the pinnacle of what I used to think of as my career, a family emergency required that I abandon my fast-lane Washington lifestyle and return home to the Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee.

This, I think, is the most tragic loss brought on by the modern health care system. The loving interconnectedness of doctor, family, and community is being destroyed. These ties that bind us to each other are the bonds that define our humanity, and yet they are being systematically severed in the service of automated bookkeeping. The entire health care system is now being organized around machines instead of human beings. Not prioritized to reduce human suffering, but rather to optimize a computerized recordkeeping system. This is a tragedy.
