Dr. Spickard's eloquent, yet humble portrayal of the inner life of a physician over time is a courageous expose' of what the journey entails. He shares poignant encounters that fueled his life's work. His unwavering compassion, curiosity and commitment shine throughout.

Stay with Me: Stories of a Black Bag Doctor is powerful and concise. It will be the perfect resource as a discussion book for doctors in training as they explore issues of professionalism, classic historical clinical presentations of various illnesses (e.g. botulism, histoplasmosis, etc.), as well as the inner psychological journey of being a physician.

Stayed up late reading until I couldn't any longer & woke in the wee hours of the morning eager to continue (and I'm not a morning person!).

Dr. Spickard gives the gift of insight with a delightful touch of humor! Reminded me of James Harriett's writings about his Veterinary House Calls. Left me with a smile on my face and in my heart.

Thank you Dr. Spickard Jr. M.D. for sharing.

I will ask my daughter if she has read it and what she thinks of it. Phooey on your "four more words." I have nothing more to say!

In today's world of frantic multitasking and fast paced technologies Dr. Anderson Spickard's Stay with Me: Stories of a Black Bag Doctor offers a reflection into decades when doctors carried a black bag on house calls and patients' welfare in their hearts. Dr. Spickard reveals memorable and vivid patient encounters with respect, compassion and sometimes humor to allow the reader insight into the ways he "stayed with" his patients through illness and sometimes through death.

Each doctor/patient experience described is unique with its compelling circumstances as it absorbs the reader into the story. As Dr. Spickard told of how he summoned the needed tools-training, dedication and resourcefulness to care for each patient, I felt as if I were present.

With the completion of each chapter's reading came the conclusion to each patient's case and with that, my curiosity and eagerness to read the next chapter. Wouldn't want to miss this book of few pages but great impact.

These stories drawn from Anderson Spickard's long and illustrious career as a practicing Nashville-based physician are straight from the heart, and will go straight to yours, guaranteed. Spickard calls them as he sees them, and his honesty, his integrity, his love for medicine, and most of all, his passionate commitment to his patients shine through on every page. Highly recommended!
