What happened that changed the priest—the revered healer of antiquity—into a person of science? How was the modern doctor made? "Physician" is Rajeev Kurapati’s earnest attempt to answer this question and others central to the practice of medicine. Dr. Kurapati, a practicing hospital physician, succeeds in gracefully exploring the depths of what it really means to be a doctor—and a patient—at this time in our human history.
