“A remarkable collection of observations, aphorisms, and grandfatherly advice . . .” —Annals of Internal Medicine
“David Mendel was an exceptionally talented individual, a polymath whose career was never confined to his profession of cardiology…As skilled with his tongue and pen as he was with a stethoscope . . . Mendel was a superlative teacher of medical students . . . His informal and easy style of writing did not disguise the wisdom and humanity of the content.” —Desmond Julian, The Independent
Proper Doctoring is a gem for physicians, future physicians, and clinicians of all types. Written in small paragraphs, it presents advice to practitioners, much like the old fashioned homily, and contains many brief examples and aphorisms. . . . The reviewer recommends the book for its grace, honesty, and integrity.” —American Psychological Association
“Good doctors are often too busy to write such a book and we are fortunate that someone of Mendel’s stature has taken the time and trouble to do so. None of us should be too busy to read it.”
—David Hay, Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine
