Inspiration, Science, They Knew their Jobs

My top three science fictional doctors

Great Doctors in Scfi, my list

I’ve been a professional (alternative) healer for several decades.
Here are a couple of people I wouldn’t mind trusting my life to:

  1. Calhoun (Med Ship, Doctor to the Stars, Pariah Planet, and others by Murray Leinster)
  2. Snake (Dreamsnake by Vonda N. McIntyre)
  3. Leonard “Bones” McCoy (Star Trek)

Does he even need an introduction…?

Who’s bedside manner impresses you?
