New Collection of Observations, Anecdotes and Court Cases Reveals the Truth About America's Dumbest Doctors, by K. Patrick McDonald, Published by Dog Ear Publishing

San Diego, CA, April 28, 2010 --( In this non-fiction study of physician misconduct, we learn for the first time what happens when a paramedic focuses his penlight on the idiocy around him and unleashes 30 years of note-taking.

In America’s Dumbest Doctors, Dog Ear Publishing author K. Patrick McDonald has produced a book that literally no one else has dared to publish, detailing exactly who the ‘bad guys’ might be: licensed professionals inappropriately held in such high esteem by the public. McDonald, a traditionally trained EMS program graduate of UCSD school of medicine in La Jolla, not only reveals first-hand instances of doctors behaving badly, but includes revelations from nurses, the media, and physicians, who themselves are so often embarrassed by their peers.

Consider the Arizona MD who – while facing 67 counts of sexually abusing his patients – announced in court, “Okay, so I’m not exactly Dr. Marcus Welby.” Or take the East Coast doctor who stole a cadaver’s hand in order to impress a topless dancer. Or the Tennessee MD who wrote to Bank of America, “This person is dead. She is green and has maggots crawling on her. Stop asking about her status.”

A retired chief of medicine from San Diego said this: “McDonald breaks rank and names names. I wish I could report that these are merely a few far-out nutcases. I honestly cannot say that. And this fact alone makes his work, regrettably, important.”

The comedy of America’s Dumbest Doctors will entertain you. The sheer volume of idiocy will educate you. And the book itself will probably save some lives.
