Dr. Kolbaba and his book

Happy holidays, dear GlassHospital readers.

A book recommendation for the season: If you like hearing positive medical stories, ones that are miraculous even, then order a copy of Dr. Scott Kolbaba’s “Physicians’ Untold Stories.”

Dr. Kolbaba is a longtime internist in Wheaton, Illinois. Over the years he’s experienced things that defy logic and rational explanation. The interesting thing is that neither he nor colleagues shared these┬ástories, fearing ridicule or disbelief, until finally the dam broke.

He spent three years producing the book, interviewing 26 different doctors, all of whom have surprising, heartwarming medical stories.

Dr. Kolbaba includes short biographical material on each of the contributors to his book.

Though the word miracle is used throughout, and the presence of God is alluded to, there is no specific religious tradition espoused in the book–so you can decide for yourself about the degree of providence within.

I hope your holidays bring peace and comfort to you and your families.
