A tribute to the healing power within
Healer's Heart is a tribute to the healing power that lies within all of us, physicians and non-physicians alike. Through the author's experiences while becoming a physician, to the joys and heartaches and even the seemingly ordinary moments with her patients over four decades, her book reminds the reader of the consummate value of caring for one another.
If you have ever waited in a doctor’s office for two hours only to have him or her give you three distracted minutes of time, this book will restore your faith in the medical world. Dr. Camosy shows her compassion in every story. Her delightful writing style shows that she is one of those rare people who is gifted in both medicine and the art of storytelling.

By using real stories from her career as a doctor, Dr. Camosy teaches me that there is more to medicine than what I learn in books. The insight into good relationships with patients has given me excitement about what my future in medicine may look like.

Healer’s Heart is a “can’t miss” read that beautifully exemplifies the adage that the secret to the care of the patient is in caring for the patient. Through her stories, Dr. Camosy eloquently displays the importance of listening to the patient, competence with compassion, and humanism in medicine.
