Imagine trusting a doctor–with the best reputation in the state–to do surgery on your eyes. Now imagine the worst of outcomes. Blindness in an eye that you learn, in fact, never needed surgery. And the medical center where you were treated is ignoring the problem.
  Waking Up Blind is the story of how an eye surgeon became the cause of an array of medical problems for his patients. It is also the story of how one of the nation’s premier medical centers tried to conceal the growing scandal. The faculty who exposed the problems were punished. Official committees and the university leaders minimized the misconduct. Slowly, lawsuits and publicity brought some to light in bits and pieces.

With the use of court documents, transcripts of tape-recorded conversations, interviews, and personal observation, Dr. Tom Harbin presents this case from the very beginning, uncovering all levels of wrongdoing and secrecy. Waking Up Blind will shock the reader with its candid exploration of the dark side of medicine.

Waking Up BLIND This is an amazing story that is a must read for both healthcare professionals and patients alike. As a physician I know all to well that abuse of power can be a lethal mix in the quality care of patients. Unfortunately mistakes are a part of healthcare. However the stunning abuse of power that went unchecked with such an obvious physician out of control. Thank you Dr Harbin for presenting this story in such a succinct and elegant way. This should be a required reading for everyone taking care…

Chilling, Relevant, and Brutally Honest I picked up Dr. Harbin’s book and found myself putting it down 8 hours later, minus a night of sleep. Although the events related in the novel should be terrifying to the average reader, relating them with an appropriate level of detail and integrity is an enormous challenge for the author. I lived through the aftermath of some of these events and can even remember a patient who traveled up from Atlanta to Baltimore for eye surgery saying that she made the trip to ensure that the proper eye…
