Product Description

Product Description

NOTE: This is a work of fiction. It is not intended for the faint of heart. The stories are extreme and the descriptions graphic.


Patients come and go, but some leave behind a memory so intense that it cannot be erased.

Third year medical student Raj Mok quickly learns that patients don’t behave like his beloved medical texts led him to believe.

The seven most outrageous patients of his first year in clinical medicine teach Raj that medicine isn’t always about healing and that killing isn’t always murder.

4.0 out of 5 stars A different story 2 Feb 2013
By Rachel
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A great read if you like the medical environs. Not a thriller per se but really enjoyable and touches on current morality issues as well as giving an insight into the life -albeit novelized- of a medical student.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unusual 26 Nov 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Really strange story not your usual medical drama. Follows a med student at a hospital and some of the nasty and sometimes gruesome things he comes across. Despite it being strange I had to read it to the end.

4.0 out of 5 stars Made me squirm (and I'm a veterinarian!) 4 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was on holiday and so thought to broaden out my reading tastes. I saw this book as a freebie and thought "What have I got to lose?"
(In truth the answer was 'my dinner' but more of this later.)
Firstly, let me say I'm so glad I read this book. I started reading and couldn't put it down. If anything the weakest chapter is the first, so if you like the sample - buy the book.
'Seven Patients' is clever on so many different levels. I especially enjoyed Raje's descent (ah, or is it an ascent?) into ignoring medical law and acting out of human sympathy for the plight of his patients. This was subtly and totally believably done. I suspect US medical practise is different to the UK, but even so I was able to follow the culture of the med students and keep up with the lingo. Be warned, however, that this book is quite graphic in places -so much so that I decided to stop reading a few hours before bedtime in case it gave me nightmares - and I'm a practising veterinarian!
It's also clever because of the question of cause and effect raised within it - but just in case I'm beginning to sound pompous let me summarise - a cracking good read with grotesque elements.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoyed 15 July 2014
By lisa
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this. I found it well written and a real page turner. Read only if you like to read about the more disgusting medical procedures out there. The stories of the seven patients weave together in the most surprising ways, and each is almost a self contained 'episode'. Made me really think about the stresses and situations young doctors are put in every day.
