When I was an ear surgeon nobody cared what my day was like, but when I changed careers to work in a maximum-security prison everybody wanted to know. I saw so many weird things that I started a journal that has grown so far into two books with a third in the works.
In my former career I saw many patients with dizziness. They often came to me frustrated that nobody seemed to be able to figure out what was wrong. If you suffer from dizziness, you can do some simple detective work yourself to figure out where the problem probably lies. Dizziness and Vertigo helps you do just that.
What’s it like to be the doctor in a maximum-security prison? Dr. Wright is about to find out as he trades a suburban practice as an ear surgeon to work with murderers and rapists in the chaos of prison life.
Lighthearted and humorous, Maximum Insecurity rips the veil off correctional facility operations and the lives of prisoners, correctional officers , and administration more interested in penny-pinching and paperwork than medical care.
Dr. William Wright gave up a suburban practice as an ear surgeon to become the doctor at Colorado’s maximum-security prison. After that, running a medical clinic at the county jail should be a snap, right? Oh, brother…
Hoards of desperate people fresh from the streets, homeless addicts, illegal aliens, and gangbangers all ruled by a corrupt sheriff and his concubine sidekick made the supermax look almost pastoral.
Told with humor and biting wit by the best-selling author of Maximum Insecurity, Jailhouse Doc follows Dr. Wright and his struggles with scamming inmates, corporate bureaucrats, and a sheriff who wants to be a doctor.
Dizziness and Vertigo
“Don’t you understand, Doc, I’m just dizzy!”
As a “dizzy doctor,” a specialist who accepted referrals of dizzy patients from other doctors, ear surgeon Dr. William Wright became the “go to” resource for patients with difficult balance problems.
He found that patients could often tell him the diagnosis if he just asked the right questions. Here he distills 30 years of experience into a simple guide for the non-medical person suffering from dizziness.
