Beloved Family Doctor, Bestselling Author Shares Vibrant Tales of His Early Years Practicing Medicine in a Small Town.

When Dr. Walt Larimore moved his young family to Kissimmee, Florida, to start a small-town medical practice in 1985, he had no idea he was embarking on an adventure that would change his life in ways both large and small.
