 Thinking Out Loud  
Lisa Davis talks with Bob Carey, MD author of Patients Teach a Doctor about Life and Death: Tales from Fifty-Six Years of Practicing. Bob Carey was born in Arlington, Massachusetts in 1929. He attended Arlington public schools. He graduated from Harvard College Cum Laude in 1950 and graduated Magna Cum Laude from Boston University School of Medicine in 1954. Half of his 4 internship and residency years were at Harvard and half at Boston University teaching hospitals. This was interrupted by 2 years of military service in Okinawa from 1955 to 1957. There he was allowed to focus on care for the very poor indigenous people. Bob married his high school sweetheart, Mary O'Neill in 1954. Five children and 12 grandchildren have brought much happiness to them. In 1960 he joined Dr. Gordon Saunders' practice in Arlington. Together they gradually invited more physicians to join them in internal medicine and most of the medical subspecialties. In 1970 they became a group practice, Internist, Inc. In 1993 the practice joined Lahey clinic to become Lahey Arlington. All of this time Bob did much administrative work, especially in his last five years before retirement in 1998. Bob taught at both Boston University and Harvard Medical Schools for many years and still teaches at BU in retirement. He is a Fellow of the American College of Physicians and the American College of Cardiology. He has boards in Geriatric Medicine and Internal Medicine. Since 1978 he has volunteered in medical programs for the poor in Bolivia and Ecuador.
