Hit by a Low Flying Goose™
And Other Cautionary Tales
Notes from the Life and Practice
of a Pediatrician and his Wife
John Gall, MD, FAAP, and Carol Gall
From the Preface:
A pediatrician’s life is not all smiles. True, there are lighter moments, but many episodes are ambiguous, even dark. We (the authors) hope you will find these stories interesting, but our primary goal is to make you think about them. They are intended as teaching tales. If these stories stimulate you to think, then they have achieved their purpose. If you enjoy reading them, then we have achieved a double satisfaction.
