Harley Rotbart, MD, has been a nationally renowned pediatric specialist, parenting expert, speaker and educator for over three decades. He is professor and Vice Chair Emeritus of Pediatrics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine and Children’s Hospital Colorado. Dr. Rothbart has authored numerous medical and scientific publications, and books, including No Regrets Parenting  and 940 Saturdays.  He is a regular contributor to Parents and the New York Times. In his latest book, Miracles We Have Seen: America’s Leading Physicians Share Stories They Can’t Forget (HCI), preeminent physicians in many specialties, including deans and department heads on the faculties of the top university medical schools in the country describe with moving testimony, their very personal reactions to medical events for which there is no reasonable explanation, or, if there is, the explanation itself is extraordinary. These dramatic first-person essays detail serendipities, impossible cures, resuscitations, awakenings, and recovery from unimaginable disasters. Still other essays give voice to cases in which the physical aspects were less dramatic than the emotional aspects, yet miraculous and transformational for everyone involved.
