5 Stars: A Story of what many physicians face,
By Midwest Book Review (Oregon, WI USA)
Being a healer can turn out to be so unhealthy. "Turnabout" follows Fred Pomeroy, a doctor who wishes all there was to his job was tending to the sick and injured. His life turns ever more chaotic, as his ex-girlfriend throws a malpractice suit at him, and the bureaucracy of the system may send Pomeroy to the poor house if he doesn't find someway to defend himself from the system. A story of what many physicians face, "Turnabout" is excellent reading and a highly recommended thriller.
Kaler has been a physician for over 30 years, and he brings his experience to "Turnabout", the story of Fred Pomeroy, a Seattle general surgeon caught in a tightening web of medical malpractice. In "Turnabout", Kaler explores and exposes the frustrations of the practice of health care in the United States, as well as the life and death struggles most doctors are party to in their day-to-day practice. Taking inspiration from many of the stories that people have shared with him over the years, Kaler aims to tell a gripping psychological mystery set against the world of medicine and the law.
