Synopsis: No medical provider practices in a vacuum. The story of their life is written by their patients over years of challenging healthcare interactions. In The Poor With Me, Dr. Johnston has written a fascinating collection of these patient stories told with poignancy, insight, and humor, much in the style of James Herriot in his All Creatures Great and Small series. A career spanning more than forty years in the inner city of Indianapolis provides the background for this extraordinary set of authentic accounts recalling common and uncommon medical vignettes that will resonate not only with healthcare providers but all readers of intriguing stories. From the challenges of managing heart disease complicated by unimaginable risk factors to treating potentially lethal cardiac arrhythmias with limited resources, from treating perplexing parasitic diseases to diagnosing rare skin conditions, the stories ring compellingly true. From routine but unexpected pregnancies to harrowing emergency deliveries in cramped quarters, from laugh-out-loud malapropisms to wrenching psycho-social disasters, The Poor With Me brings to life the authenticity of healthcare amid the numbing reality of poverty. Commentaries on the effect of poverty on individuals, families and the communities of the inner city highlight the insight brought by a lifetime of medical practice in this daunting setting.
