This science fiction adventure is about a disgruntled doctor who, infuriated by modern medical practice demands, practices in secret and uses lectures given by patients and friends to recruit patients to his underground practice. He and his associates all but take over the local hospital, unknown to its administration.Alternative medicine treatments are part of the plot and are explained for the layman. There's a scene in which three frustrated doctors use well-explained scientific principles, while roaring drunk, to make a complete mockery of organized medicine using bad puns.The novel ends with a tribute to Ayn Rand and ❝Atlas Shrugged.❞
