Helpful Hints


The ten stories in this collection, written by a medical doctor, all focus on the medical profession, where the main character is either a medical student, hospital house officer, or doctor. These stories reflect the author's many medical experiences which are woven into these writings, giving a richness and diversity to the plots, and each ending with a little twist. Each story invites the reader to another medical setting as another mini-drama unfolds, or another ethical issue unwinds, or someone faces an ultimate decision, until the final suspenseful "who­dunit" story of mystery and intrigue, "Not Always Benign." Blending pathos and humor with a medical background-much like television episodes of medical drama-Dr. Birken offers these intriguing vignettes.
