Patient, A Surgeon’s Journey tells the story of Jeffrey Piehler, a driven, self-described work obsessed surgeon. When an incurable cancer diagnosis changes his perception of medicine and healing, Jeff reevaluates his priorities and moves his life in directions he never expected. He travels, expands his horizons, initiates important talks with his family and loved ones, and lectures to medical students.
Inspired by Jeff’s journey and his message of embracing mortality, Jeff’s peers banded together to bring his message to the world. In Jeff’s own words, “No one wants to talk about dying, but everyone wants to talk about dying.”
