About the Author
I'm a thoracic surgeon and current Head of the Thoracic Surgery Department at the 424 Military Hospital in Greece. It's a position I've held since 1999. My early years were spent in my hometown, Kalampaka, which lies under Meteora, a picturesque rocky complex with post-Byzantine monasteries built on top. I studied Medicine at Aristotle University in Thessaloniki, Greece. I've been practicing Medicine since 1988. I began my specialist-training initially in Athens, Greece, then continued in the United Kingdom cities of London, Glasgow and Belfast. I'm a former Regent of the European Society of Thoracic Surgeons for Greece (2005-2010). My areas of interest include lung cancer, bioethics, medical ethics, and medical documentation.

My inspiration for writing emerged from career milestones and other events in diverse geographical locations and cities in the UK, Greece, the United States, France and elsewhere. My first three books were written and published in 2016, two in Greek and one in English: www.papachristos.eu In favor of: -coffee (lots of coffee) -wire fox terriers -humanism -history -photography -design and -reading.

Most helpful customer reviews on Amazon.com
The author reports numerous examples from his long experience of patients who ended up completely ruined, not physically, by the oblivious state their doctors or their family members had deliberately put them into.
Caught myself being 100% absorbed reading the stories by the lively narration and the author's excellent writing skills. Certainly recommend it not only to patients, but to medical - paramedical staff and relatives of patients.
The author provides honest insights into a medical system that is in urgent need of improvement. Lack of compassion, misinformation or even deception, false hopes, over-treatment and avarice are all exposed!
The book contains an experienced surgeon’s Wisdom shared with emphasis on the human side of caregiving with grace, sincerity and honesty. It is a testament to the value of Hope that is based on truth, not on deceit. It also provides practical advice on how gradually to break bad news.
