Memories, Stories, and Lessons Learned from Five Decades of Family Medicine

Dr. Robert Chambliss knows how important it is to set a good example. When he was just nine years old, he attended an Honors Day ceremony given for the beloved “country doctor” who helped his family and community, and he knew then and there that he was called to that same profession. Raised with a superb work ethic and high standards instilled in him by his steadfast, dedicated father and loving, brilliant mother, Robert broke away from the family farm to pursue his dream. He began his practice in 1964 in the Appalachian foothills as Kentucky’s youngest practicing physician. After a few years, he returned home to follow in the footsteps of his inspiration, Dr. Kincheloe, also a native of Breckenridge County, Kentucky.

Author Information...

This candid, warm-hearted memoir ranges from Bob Chambliss’ achievements in high school basketball to his adventures with memorable patients. He’s seen it all, from being paid nothing for a house call prior to the advent of health insurance, to navigating the ins and outs of the Affordable Care Act. It’s a beautiful tribute to the extraordinary parents who raised him, and a love letter to the exceptional woman he married. It’s a friendly handshake and listening ear to every patient who trusted him over the years. And more than anything, it’s a testimony to the values that he’s brought to his life, and which he has worked hard to pass on to his children and grandchildren: morality, ethics, character—and most of all, love of family, the foundation that allows each of us to stand in loving service to others. Honest, inspiring, and often hilarious, Country Doctor is the cure for the aches and pains of daily life.
