About A Medical Affair
While under the care of her pulmonologist after a life-threatening asthma
attack, Heather Morrison enters into an affair with her doctor. This affair
violates the state’s code of conduct and his medical treatment violates the
Hippocratic oath. Heather’s life is shattered as a result. After the doctor
terminates the relationship, Heather begins research for her own healing,
and armed with this information, she initiates a civil lawsuit. Although it
is a work of fiction, A Medical Affair was extensively researched. A
Medical Affair is a critical book for women who want to make educated
decisions regarding their relationships with their doctors.
