Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

60 hours a week

240 patients

10 minutes to make a diagnosis

Welcome to the surgery

Charting his 15 years working as a GP, from rookie to becoming a partner in one of the UK’s busiest surgeries, Dr Amir Khan’s stories are as much about community and care as they are about blood tests and bodily fluids. 

Along the way, he introduces us to the patients that have taught him about love, loss and family - from the regulars to the rarities - giving him the most unbelievable highs and crushing lows and often in just 10 minutes. 

There is the unsuspecting pregnant woman about to give birth at the surgery, the man offering to drop his trousers and take a urine sample there and then, the family who needs support through bereavement, the vulnerable child who will need continuing care for a long-term health condition and, of course, the onset of the COVID-19 that tested the surgery at every twist and turn. But, it’s all in a day’s work for Amir. 

The Doctor Will See You Now is a powerful story of hope, love and compassion, but it’s also a rare insider account of what really goes on behind those surgery doors.

Absolutely brilliant!

I love a good medical memoir but they're harder to find than you think considering how many there now are! Dr Khan's voice is so soothing and lovely to listen to and there is plenty of humour among the sad truths of being a GP, especially in these terribly hard times.

Just a great listen start to finish.

Absolute rubbish!

As a senior doctor in the UK, I've rarely read something so pointless and boring... I stopped listening after the first few chapters... please don't waste your time here... there are so many proper and better books by accomplished individuals such as Stephen Westaby, Henry Marsh, Atul Gawande and even Adam Kay!

In-depth and insightful

Also being in the healthcare space, I really enjoyed this book. Great story telling and easy to listen to. Definitely gave me a new lens to view GP’s through. Keep up the great work and I hope you consider writing another book!
