A pithy and fascinating look at a life spent in the “Gyn Mill” as Dr. Cone shares stories about medical school, hilarious tales from his practice, and thoughts about the current transition from "caring to commercial" in the health care community.
From the book:Talking with my patients about their lives and families was a great pleasure. Thanks to the bureaucrats and minute counters, this experience in many offices has gone the way of the buggy whips.
The loyalty of long-time patients was once exhibited by an octogenarian and her friend, also a patient, who told me, “Lena and I are furious with you for retiring. We decided we would rather change husbands than gynecologists.”
