Summary of "Politicians' Personal Physicians: careers and complications from King David until today."

Court physicians need to deal with a clientele posing particular personality problems (e. g. rex inutilis) in a difficult environment characterized by specific health issues (morbi aulici) and they may have to avoid serious risks or want to seek great opportunities (medicus politicus). Very few have been successful as King David, a former music therapist without a medical degree, or the dentist and president Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow. Several became victims of fatal circumstances. Not all could resist temptation of questionable literary fame at the expense of confidentiality. All told, a career close to high profile leaders needs to be considered carefully as risks may outweigh benefits.
