Prior to his unexpected and sudden death in January of 2005, Dr. Riordan had practiced clinical medicine for nearly 50 years. Having served as a consultant to the Executive Vice President of the American Medical Association for more than five years and as President of the American Holistic Medical Association for two years, he brought a unique perspective to the world of medicine. A graduate of the University of Wisconsin and The University of Wisconsin Medical School, Dr. Riordan believed that his Medical Mavericks books fill a significant void in what we need to know about those who have blazed the trail of scientific and medical progress.
Medical Mavericks, Volume Three, is the third volume in Dr. Riordan’s trilogy of vignettes about these fascinating trailblazers. It also marks Dr. Riordan’s final publication. Printed in the USA, 2005, paperback (259 pages).
