About this title


Dr. Mayo's Boy traces the medical experiences of three generations of Texas physicians in small town Waxahachie and big city Dallas. Full of stories that are often heartening in their humanity and sometimes disturbing in what they reveal about contemporary health care, Dr. Mayo's Boy explores how physicians have viewed their commitment to their patients, how they sacrifice to meet the challenges they face and how the practice of medicine has, sadly, changed over almost sixty years. While this book is by no means a policy statement, it offers a nostalgic but clear-eyed look at the past and, through its tales of three doctors lives, asks implicit questions about how we manage health care today. There must remain one constant--the need for a patient to know that their doctor cares about them as an individual.

About the Author:

Rob Tenery, MD is the third of three generations of physicians whose careers span the last one hundred years. Rob, an ophthalmologist, began his writing career when he authored commentaries about current events that were impacting health care. His expertise representing medical organizations on a local, state, and national level led him to become a monthly contributor to the nationally distributed American Medical News from 1990-1998. From there, he decided to pen Dr. Mayo's Boy, a more comprehensive look at the evolution of his profession. Rob and his wife Janet have two children and four grandchildren. When he is not caring for his patients or lecturing at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, their family enjoys relaxing in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
