Rick Adamson gives a stirring performance of Doc by Ron Losee, a graduate of Yale Medical School and an international authority on orthopedic surgery. His dulcet voice brings to life the winsome stories from the Montana countryside. In 1949, Losee began his medical practice in a log cabin, where he lived with his wife. All his medical equipment fit into a single bag. The young doctor charged his first patient three dollars. In the ensuing years, he has had numerous extraordinary experiences, which he relates in a compassionate way, sharing the highs and lows of a life dedicated to health care.
In 1949, Ron Losee, a young Yale Medical School graduate, headed west with his wife and small daughter to begin the practice of medicine. They settled in Ennis, Montana, in a log cabin that also became their office and lab. Patients made themselves at home in the living room. One small bag held all their medical equipment. It was a proud moment when a patient first called Losee "Doc." His fee on that occasion was three dollars.
In robust, freewheeling prose, Doc Losee - now internationally known for his work in orthopedic surgery - shares nearly half a century of dedicated doctoring, evoking the rich flavor of Montana and the dramatic dilemmas that never cease to haunt the country doctor. Exhilarating and entertaining, Doc is a moving reminder of what people - doctors and patients--can be and do. It's the perfect cure for what ails us.
