    The Rise and Fall of Dr. Bossy Boots by Dr. Michael Gross

    This year will be my 50th year in medicine and 40 years in the world of neurology. The changes in that time immense. We are still in the infancy of modern medicine as the current crisis has shown us. Our children and grandchildren are going to see the most remarkable advances in the future. As an NHS Consultant I was shortlisted  UK Hospital Doctor of the Year in both 1998 and 1999. I have since spent 20 happy years as a private specialist. I have seen something like 200,000 patients and worked with hundreds of colleagues.
