Review

"Miracles We Have Seen opens a window into the complex world of the art and the science of medicine for all to see the compassionate miracles dispensed there. Take a good look . . . you will be inspired!"—Richard Carmona, MD, MPH, FACS, 17th Surgeon General of the United States

"A beautifully written collection from physicians witnessing the mystery and power of the human body and spirit in the most extreme circumstances. This is a unique contribution that will inspire and edify."  —Jerome Groopman, MD, Recanati Professor, Harvard Medical School, New Yorker staff writer, and co-author with Dr. Pamela Hartzband of the New York Times bestseller Your Medical Mind: How to Decide What Is Right for You

"A remarkable volume of essays detailing prolonged effort and novel therapies leading to miraculous outcomes. Empathic care, co-produced by extraordinary teams of medical professionals, their patients and families. Every page speaks 'gratitude.' These stories will contribute powerfully to cures, and equally to cures of burn-out and despair."  —Richard I. Levin, MD, President and CEO, The Arnold P. Gold Foundation; Emeritus Professor of Medicine, New York and McGill Universities

"As a witness to one of the miracles recounted in this uplifting book, I welcome Dr. Rotbart's extraordinary collection of compelling testimonies from leading physicians. Take a look, and have your faith in God—and in his agents of healing, doctors—renewed!"   Timothy Michael Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York

"At a time when the labor of the ideal physician is described as routinized and industrialized—standard work leading to standard outcomes—these stories inspire. These wise physicians remind us that we are at our best when we are open to the surprises, the graces, and even the miracles that occur when we are present for the ill."  —Abraham M. Nussbaum, MD, MTS, Chief Education Officer, Denver Health, Associate Director of Medical Education, Department of Psychiatry, University of Colorado, and author of The Finest Traditions of My Calling: One Physician's Search for the Renewal of Medicine

"Deeply moving and eloquently written, this remarkable collection reminds us how the art and science of medicine intersect with good luck, coincidence, and the unfathomable. For physicians, these essays call to mind our own stories that inspired us toward the healing of our patients."  —Jeremy A. Lazarus, MD, past President, American Medical Association

"Doctors tell the human side of medicine in these stories—revealing the heart and soul that go into truly 'caring' care."  —Jimmie C. Holland, MD, Wayne E. Chapman Chair in Psychiatric Oncology, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, author of The Human Side of Cancer: Living with Hope, Coping with Uncertainty

"For patients, their families, and all the rest of us, Miracles We Have Seen is a welcome reminder that even the most dire diagnoses can have happy endings, thanks to the inspiring dedication of doctors."  —Diane Debrovner, Deputy Editor, Parents Magazine  

"If you need a dose of beauty, hope and encouragement, you'll find it in this collection of essays from doctors on medical miracles—things they've seen while practicing for which they have no explanation, or only an extraordinary one. It's a happy tears book (and all author proceeds go to charity)."  —KJ Dell'Antonia, New York Times columnist and contributing editor; author, "How It's Done" blog

"In an age of technology and indifference, these remarkable essays inspire wonder, awe, and a sense of pride of being human. They demonstrate that the miracle of miracles is that they do happen when health professionals combine their medical skills with unrelenting devotion to the art of healing." Bernard Lown, MD, Emeritus Professor of Medicine, Harvard School of Public Health, Emeritus Senior Medical Attending, Brigham and Women's Hospital, founder of Physicians for Social Responsibility (1961), recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize (1985) on behalf of the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War --This text refers to the paperback edition.
