Dr. Chuck Radis: House Calls and Clinic Visits on Maine’s Casco Bay Islands
Our first hybrid program!
Join us in the Athenaeum reading room for stories ranging from hilarious to heart breaking with Dr. Chuck Radis as he relates experiences from his medical practice in Peaks Island, Maine.
After completing medical school and an internal medicine residency, the young doctor moved his family to Peaks Island off the coast of Maine to fulfill a scholarship obligation. Absent-minded and oblivious to island mores, he adapted to a medical practice where x-rays and advanced lab were available only on the mainland. In addition to his clinic duties on Peaks and Chebeague Islands, he traveled year-round by boat to the outer islands and logged more than 100 yearly house calls.
His first book, Go by Boat, and the recently released, Island Medicine, have been described as a blend of James Herriot’s All Creatures Great and Small meets Doc Martin.
