What a heart-warming and enjoyable book about an inspiring Mennonite doctor who practiced for 36 years among the Amish in Ohio. If you are interested in the Amish, this is a must read. If you are looking for a book about a selfless man who practiced medicine "the old fashioned way" with caring and compassion, and housecalls at all hours of the day and night, this is a must read! Amusing and heart-wrenching anecdotes fill the book and the pages fly beneath your fingers as you read, it is very compelling. You would have to have a heart of stone to not be moved by this book. Highly recommended!
A country-boy-turned-country-doctor goes on house calls among the Amish of eastern Ohio in this collection of true-life tales. This is a sometimes homorous and often intimate account of Dr. Elton Lehman's 36 years of practicing medicine among the Amish of Wayne Copunty, Ohio, for which he was named Country Doctor of the year.
This is a great book,It's one of those books you can't put down!We need alot more Drs like this man he really cared about people and gave them the best treatment he could.
I loved this book. It is a great story of a doctor who worked with Amish and non-Amish people in Ohio. It is a story that has both wonderful and heartwrenching moments. All and all a great book.
This is a wonderful story about a Doctor who has devoted his life to helping the Amish and the small community in which he lived.
Touching account of a doctor's practice among the Amish.
This was truly a good book, but parts of it are pretty graphic in description of the country doctor's patients and their ailments. This is a book set in Amish country.
Sometimes humorous and often intimate account of Dr. Elton Lehman's 36 years of pracitcing medicine among the Amish of Wayne, County, OH for which he was named Coutnry Doctor of the Year.
This is a 'feel good' book. I read it in one sitting. You cry & smile while reading, sometimes both at the same time.
I have really enjoyed this book. Having read many books about the Amish, this is a whole new twist on some of the stories. Actually makes you cringe and laugh out loud the next page.
Excellent book about a real country doctor! I loved the stories in this book, and the author did a wonderful job portraying the doctor.
I read this book in a day. Great insight into the life this doctor chose and his unusual medical practice.
Great Book! I really enjoyed all the stories.
This was a very heart-warming book about a very good, selfless man.
Wonderful book! I thoroughly enjoyed reading this and didn't want to put it down till I was through.

A very good/fun read. Even learned some things. Oh that we had more doctors around like this one!
