One Doctor’s Journey In and Out of Medicine

by Maggie Kozel

Praise

"A rare, intimate portrayal of one pediatrician's journey to become a doctor and her heart-wrenching decision years later to eventually leave medicine. Told with candor and wit, Maggie Kozel's memoir is a powerful reminder of the complex forces that shape medical practice today."

Eliza Lo Chin, MD, MPH, President, American Medical Women's Association, and Editor, This Side of Doctoring: Reflections from Women in Medicine


"Dr. Kozel captures perfectly the malaise that has struck American medicine in general and primary care in particular. The chronicle of this intelligent and committed physician—who is frustrated at every turn as she tries to find satisfaction in a profession to which she had expected to dedicate her life—is a powerful indictment of our current system of medical care. We should have done better by her.
