Goodbye Stories from University Hospital describes the journey of a young man from the infantry battlefields of Vietnam to becoming a physician in the major medical centers of the United States of America. The stories are of the relationships he has experienced along the way and of the lessons which came from those who faced the most difficult thing in life, which is the leaving of it.

Randolph B. Schiffer graduated with Honors from Yale College in 1969. He served afterward as an infantry officer with the 1st and 3rd Marine Division in Vietnam and contiguous areas in Southeast Asia. Dr. Schiffer graduated from the University of Michigan Medical School in 1976 and, afterward, completed residencies both in Psychiatry and Neurology. In his medical career, he directed the Ambulatory Care System at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, New York; held the Vernon and Elizabeth Haggerton Chair in Neurology at Texas Tech University; and was named the founding director of the Center for Brain Health at the Cleveland Clinic. He is the author of two medical books and more than one hundred and forty medical science publications. He is the only physician named in The Best Doctors in America in two separate specialties. He and his wife, Lynn Bickley, live in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he writes fiction and does private wealth management. They have two grown children, one of whom is an Air Force Weapons Defense Officer and one an Associate with J.P. Morgan.
