About the Book:
I was not even out of medical school before I witnessed my first doctor commit murder. It would not be my last – Lord, no – but I can recall that night as vividly as though it happened last week. Few medics forget their first physician homicide.
Praise for “Paramedic Heretic”:
“With health care front and center in today’s headlines, Mr. McDonald’s voice is an important one, now more than ever. He reveals a number of disturbing realities. We might want to pay close attention to what this gentleman has to say.” – Dr. Max Harry Weil, Founder, Weil Institute of Critical Care Medicine
