Book written by physician at St. Joseph in Albuquerque earns good reviews


Health "The Blood of Strangers: Stories from Emergency Medicine," a book by Frank Huyler, MD, an emergency room physician at St. Joseph Healthcare in Albuquerque, N.M., has been earning favorable reviews from The New Yorker Magazine, Publishers Weekly and Kirkus Reviews. A reviewer from Kirkus wrote that the book is "An unusual series of quiet, concentrated stories from an emergency room physician. Dramatic, desperate, baffling events abound, and Huyler easily draws us into the picture. …Utterly engrossing, moving, poetic accounts."
