The Doctor’s Case


“Entertaining, amusing, fascinating and interesting. What more could you want in a book?”

-Gay Byrne-

Available on backorder


The Doctor’s Case is a new collection of humorous writings, musings and stories from Dr Maurice Gueret as he celebrates twenty five years in Irish medicine.

It follows on the great success of his first book What The Doctor Saw, which sold thousands of copies and received rave reviews.

Well known for his popular dose of Rude Health each week in the Sunday Independent, the good doctor now delves deep into his Gladstone bag to uncover a delightful repository of clinical gems. Dr Gueret ventures out on busman’s holidays to Venice, Paris, Madrid, Florence, Madeira and further afield. He ponders whether the varicose veins that run in the legs of his family saved grandfather Gueret’s life during the Great War at Ypres. And he rifles through an eclectic assortment of medical jokes and real life stories from his diaries, memoirs, columns and reviews.

Delivered with his trademark wry and witty style, The Doctor’s Case will delight readers who already love his work, and bring plenty of new admirers too.
