Rob Tenery, MD is the third in three generations of physicians whose careers span the last one hundred years. Rob, an ophthalmologist, first began his writing career when he authored commentaries dealing with current events that were impacting the health care profession. His expertise acquired from representing medical organizations on a local, state and national level led him to becoming a monthly contributor to the nationally distributed periodical, American Medical News, from 1990–1998. It was toward the end of his tenure that he decided to put down on paper a more comprehensive look at the evolution of his chosen profession.

In practice for over thirty-six years, Rob points out the relevance of the lessons he learned while trailing his grandfather and father during his youth. His compelling stories remind the reader that even a century after his grandfather first set out on horseback to care for the sick and injured with only a small bag of potions and a caring heart, there is still one constant–the patient in need.

Married to his high school sweetheart since 1964, Rob and Janet have two children and four grandchildren. When he is not caring for his patients or lecturing at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, their family spends time relaxing and enjoying all that Santa Fe, New Mexico, and the surrounding area has to offer.
