Summary "... The dark frustrations of a Boston doctor who refused to ignore that, every day, we are losing good doctors. Dr. Ryan Flesher's raw and unscripted look at himself and his own place in medicine provides a unique revelation that our modern day healers have long held silent. Being a physician today carries a complexity and responsibility, known only to those whom are expected to tend to the ills of society. But when doctors are suffering themselves - who really cares? We are all patients and come the day that we allow for money to supersede humanity, we all become collateral damage. Dr. Flesher, driven by the altruism that brought him into medicine, with camera in hand, will pull back the curtain. In so doing, he becomes both observer and participant in this unique exploration into the psyche of physicians today... from Boston to San Francisco to Denver and from Ecuador to Maine and back"--Publishers' website
