Steven Bentley, M.D. is a board certified ER doctor with a career spanning more than thirty years in various North Carolina emergency departments. His journey began in the mid-1970’s when he chose to pursue a career in medicine. In his youthful perspective he came to regard doctors as the good guys, the ones who healed people and saved lives. He knew that he would be one of those good guys one day. He describes the real world of emergency medicine from the viewpoint of a practicing emergency physician. In the dynamic world of emergency medicine, there is a great deal of pain, blood and tragedy, but there is also hope, compassion and excitement – for both the patients and the staff. “His is a genuine, sympathetic voice, quick to praise or condemn doctors and nurses as deserved, while also offering a mature understanding of the oddities of human behavior” - Foreword Clarion “A License to Heal” is a pleasure to read, and will enlighten readers as to the inner workings of the emergency room, and the practice of medicine in general. - Foreword Clarion “Bentley emerges as a compassionate doctor who sympathizes with his patients, including those who have allowed their bodies to fall apart” - Kirkus Reviews “The writing is effective; Bentley emerges as the doctor everyone would want in a medical emergency. An invaluable inside look at the realities of the U.S. health care system.” - Kirkus Reviews

Patients bring many bits and pieces to their doctors' visits. Health issues. Things they've noticed. Worries about specific symptoms. Concerns that need reassurance. They also bring their personal stories though in the present high-tech assessment of patients' health, these are easily missed, and we are all the less for that loss today. Yesterday's doctors had the time to visit with their patients. We took delight in hearing what had been special in our patients' lives. We learned about the particular events that made some patients so different from any others, made them what they are. Some intrigued us. Some charmed us. Some amused us. Some worried us. And some scared the pants off us. None bored us. Such personal knowledge of our patients helped to make us see them as individuals. Indeed, patients might be surprised to find how much we recall of those times they came to see us. This book, a collection of stories from patients' lives, may show we remember them fondly.
