Author Tom Weber proudly shares a man’s selfless efforts to help the poor and the needy by being ‘The Christmas Doctor’
UTAH – “Sometimes, present day medical practitioners seem to forget the deep spiritual springs of their profession,” author Tom Weber says. In his quest to highlight a remarkable person’s almost unbelievable willingness and drive to help people, Weber tells an endearing and inspiring account of “The Christmas Doctor” (published by AuthorHouse). Illustrating Dr. Weber’s (his father’s) life, Weber presents a very interesting alternative to today’s emphasis on the economic side of the medical practice and also to modern-day student loans.
Since his life was saved as a teenager by a deeply religious nurse, John Peter Weber dedicated his life to saving the lives of others. He performed hard physical labor over a long period of time in order to pay the cost of attending medical school. His medical career took place amidst some of the most primitive country in the United States including Hell’s Canyon of the Snake River, Salmon River Canyon, and the Bitterroot Mountains.
Presenting not an ideal but real practice of one heroic physician from the earlier times, Weber gets his message across that an unselfish, humanitarian, and courageous medical practice can be rewarding.
