About the Book

This is an unusual and fascinating story of a young foreign medical school graduate who is beginning his four years of specialty training during the 1960’s in a large County Hospital. OVER HERE picks up where Bob’s first book, OVER THERE leaves off, which with humor, poignancy, and spectacular photography, colorfully described his fascinating six years of medical school in Switzerland. This new book follows Bob through his entire medical career which includes many aspects of his personal life, family illness, his successes and his personal failures. The reader will get a very unique insight into the mind of a young practicing physician as he confronts the many challenges of an evolving medical delivery system as well as those of his personal and professional life. You will read about the emergency ambulance rides he was required to make during his internship as well as some of the more interesting emergency room cases he treated and how he eventually founded and ran a very successful group practice. Be intrigued when you read about Bob’s very unique and extraordinary interests outside his practice of medicine. Dr. Schoenfeld is married and has three children and four grandchildren. He maintains a strong interest in photography, both traditional and creative and has had two successful photographic exhibits in one of New York’s most prestigious art galleries, the National Arts Club in Gramercy Park.

About the Author

“Crawling into the front of the crushed car over shards of glass I reached the driver who was sweating profusely as he screamed out in pain. His legs were crushed under the dashboard. I like most physicians tried to calm him stating; “we’ll get you out,” and “you’ll be okay”. You’ll be okay, is the standard statement in most critical situations where the doc tries to give some reassurance to the victim although as a doctor, he may know the outcome may be very different then, okay. This poor guy was in so much pain I don’t think he heard anything I said. When I reached him, all I could do was to start an IV, pressure bandage some of the oozing blood, monitor his blood pressure and inject him with a strong analgesic.”
