The Best Medicine

Tales of Humor and Hope from a Small-Town Doctor

Walt Larimore, MD

When Dr. Walt Larimore moved his young family to Kissimmee, Florida, to start a small-town medical practice in 1985, he had no idea he was embarking on an enterprise that would change his life in ways both large and small. But there’s no telling what you’ll run into as a family physician in a rural, small-town community.

Perfect for anyone yearning for a simpler, slower pace of life, as well as fans of Dr. Larimore’s popular Bryson City series, The Best Medicine is a tender and insightful collection of stories chronicling one young doctor’s passage from inexperience to maturity as a physician, husband, father, and community member. Filled with characters colorful and crusty, warm-hearted and hot-headed, witty and winsome, these captivating stories glow with warmth, love, and humor. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll wish Dr. Larimore was your doctor.
