My wife's doctor's story
27 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This Lifetime-produced movie is the (mostly accurate) tragic story of a very nice man and a great Doctor whom delivered all three of my wife's children in 1971, 1973 and 1975 while he was employed at Kaiser Hospital in Hayward, California. He was her doctor for 7 years.

Kiley did a good job capturing his essence as always smiling, right down to the trademark "ivy cap". I wish the writers would have spent a little more time showing some of his bedside manner before rushing into the Alzheimers issue.

No matter what your stand on assisted suicide, this heart wrenching and thought-provoking tale is highly recommended and gets an 8 from me.
