As a boy grows up the child of two unemotional doctors, he learns some of his work ethic and sense of duty from his beloved nanny. While he transforms from the toughest boy in his class into the runt and eventually into an academic and athletic success, the young man has no idea that many years later, his medical career will suddenly end, mainly because of one tumultuous event.
In a hard-hitting narrative, Bryce Sterling details how his storybook life as a young physician slowly spiraled into a nightmare after he became embroiled in battles with his ex-wife, his lawyers, medical boards, courts, and colleagues. After sharing observations of the legal system, Sterling offers a glimpse into his background as he entered the medical field and then reveals the treachery and pitfalls that unfolded after he was sued for medical malpractice. As he details how he struggled to continue his shattered career until its bitter, premature end, Sterling shines a light on the inner-workings of a legal system he claims purportedly leaves doctors with a limited defense against the medical board.
My Back Pages is the true story of a physician’s journey before, during, and after his life and career were forever thrown into chaos.
