Dr. Grass

What to expect

An MD as outrageous as your doctor’s bill

Ernie Spiegelglass gets high, gets involved, and is about to complete his residency … he hopes.

Brash, brilliant, and often profane, Ernie (alias Doc Sparrowgrass) enters the world of a San Francisco clinic and turns the entire place upside down with his riotous romances and his own unique style—which includes treating patients like people. The medical establishment is turned off to his idea of medicine—from the heart, not by the book—but Ernie can’t turn his back on anyone who comes to him for help, even if it means jeopardizing his career.

Dr. Grass is a funny, honest, poignant book about a refugee from the 1960’s growing up and not selling out in the 1970’s.
