""Mullan gets it right! His 'big doctors' are the unsung heroes of American medicine. Their stories â¿¿and they are great storiesâ¿¿tell us where we have to go to build a medical system that will work for everybody. And I mean everybody - the CEO, the family on welfare, you, and me.""â¿¿Studs Terkel, author of Working, The Good War, and Coming of Age ""Big Doctoring is a unique undertaking. We hear people in the frontlines of medicine tell us their story, and tell it in their own voices. In these pages, which are a joy to read, we find proof that medicine is, and always will be, both art and science.""â¿¿Abraham Verghese, M.D., author of The Tennis Partner ""Big Doctoring is an extraordinarily compelling effort by a dedicated and idealistic physician -- who offers us, through the voices of his informants, a clearly written narrative that tells of a profession's contemporary challenges and difficulties. Here is documentary work of the most instructive and telling kind -- a nation's healers become witnesses and teachers for us readers.""â¿¿Robert Coles, M.D. ""At a time when both doctors and patients in record numbers abhor the shadowy mass of gloomy economics and gruesome bureaucracy that has overtaken American medicine, Mullan shows us a path out of the darkness. And his is a desperately needed map, as physicins and nurses are now quitting in droves, tens of millions of Americans are losing their health insurance, and millions more, though insured, are forbidden treatments and primary care that could save their lives. Bravo!""â¿¿Laurie Garrett, author of The Coming Plague and Betrayal of Trust
