    1. This was a quick read -- after finishing David Dosa's book about Oscar the cat, I decided that I wanted to read some more stories from practitioners in the medical field, since goodness knows that I've read my fair share of psychology/psychiatry books! I randomly picked this one up on for my Kindle, and enjoyed it thoroughly.Dr. Rosemary tells her stories in a light-hearted, down-to-earth fashion. Any medical words, diagnoses, or abbreviations are explained so the stories are accessible to non- [...]

    2. When going to the visit a doctor everyone is different, some people go and get straight to the point, others dance around what they are really there for. Doctor, Doctor gives us an insight into the diverse range of people our GP’s see every day, we are also treated to some of the more unusual cases Dr Rosemary has faced during her time as a GP in London. While we do see a small part of Rosemary’s career in the media is it defiantly not the main theme in the book, we get to understand how she [...]

    3. Great readI enjoyed this book immensely, in fact I would have liked it to be longer . well written,funny and a great insight into the daily rigours of a Doctor.

    4. This one had me laughing out loud and reading parts aloud to friends. I found the book on a book exchange shelf at a resort hotel, passed it along to friends, and ordered a copy for myself.

    5. Rosemary Leonard writes in a very readable style in this fascinating book. I find it interesting to read about how doctors see their patients and there is something to be gained from the patient’s point of view in reading all of these books. Doctors don’t always get it right and the author is the first to admit she has made mistakes. Patients don’t always listen to good advice – such as ‘Josh’ the asthma patient. Others don’t actually say what they want to discuss with the doctor b [...]

    6. A highly insightful book into the life of a GP, and one which I found hilarious to read, practically envisioning myself working at the practice. The setting to me has a serious old school vibe, perhaps it would have been good to have a time period for each of the cases, just to note around when it took place. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book, and will be moving onto the sequel right now!

    7. I've enjoyed this very real and often hilarious account of cases faced by Dr. Rosemary Leonard's GP's surgery! The only downside is that it finished too quickly, I wanted more! I hope there is a second book :) highly recommended!
