Marvin J. Stone, MD, MACP, FRCP


“We must always bear in mind the three pillars of medicine: Competence, Caring, and Compassion. These core values in medicine and science are crucial in fulfilling our goals: to cure sometimes, to relieve often, and to comfort always”



Dr. Marvin Stone describes his fascinating journey through the last half-century in medicine: becoming a physician, acquiring intense training in patient care and research, and teaching at all levels. Along the way, he introduces us to some of exceptional leaders in the field through noteworthy first-hand accounts. This medical memoir focuses on how clinical perspective and judgment develop as one travels through an exciting career. It will be of interest to students, young doctors, experienced physicians, and lay persons with interest in medical science and health care.
