Medical Mavericks, Volume Two will continue what Volume One started. It will raise the eyebrows of most, make others chuckle, and bring a sense of relief to contemporary mavericks, who can take comfort in the thought that even the concept that physicians need to wash their hands was ridiculed.

Having practiced clinical medicine for more than 30 years, served as a consultant to the Executive Vice-President of the American Medical Association for more than five years and president of the American Holistic Medical Association for two years, Dr. Riordan brings a unique perspective to the world of medicine. A graduate of the University of Wisconsin and the University of Wisconsin Medical School, Dr. Riordan believes that the nationwide lack of history of medicine courses like the ones he enjoyed at Wisconsin leaves a significant void in medical education.
