Summary
A straitlaced novice doctor gets initiated into the unorthodox world of a crafty rural sawbones in Taylor's American debut. Barry Laverty is fresh out of school and uncertain about what type of medicine he should practice when he answers an ad for a physician's assistant in Ballybucklebo, a small Northern Ireland town populated, it seems, entirely by eccentrics. Laverty is initially taken aback by his new boss, O'Reilly, as he is literally throwing a patient out of his office

Summary
Barry Laverty, who recently graduated from medical school, jumps at the chance for an assistant's position at a small rural practice in Ballybucklebo, Northern Ireland. It's a long way from Belfast, and Barry is quick to discover that he has a lot to learn about country life and he'll find out more about life - and love - than he ever imagined.
