Dr. Robert Leong, USA
The author provided glimpses of his life through the years in a short, loveable, and easy-to-read book. I enjoyed his reminiscing about the kind of life he used to live in the cities and villages in Malaysia before the arrival of social media. His varied experiences as a government, private, and military physician were a novelty to read as well.

Indeed, a truthful and insightful journey of life as a doctor. This is an easy and interesting book when someone picks up to read, he will not put it down until the last page. A true, interesting, and colorful life story of an ordinary person who becomes a cardiologist with the help and guidance of the one and true God, Jesus Christ. This book indicates to us that though we may not believe or know God, He is always there planning and guiding our lives.
This book indicates to us that though we may not believe or know God, He is always there planning and guiding our lives. The author wished to share that when one does know this God, He will be even more ready to prepare and usher him towards the direction where he can find security, meaning, blessings and joy. The panoramic view of a village boy to a city doctor, interspersed with beautiful poems, has shown how an honest, innocent young person faced and swam in the ocean of many sophisticated and challenging turbulence. His faith in Jesus Christ has become an oasis for him in the world of struggles, unending expectations, and stressful pressures. A book I find great relief and comfort for the soul.

I found reading this book very inspiring as Andrew Koh shares stories about his childhood, education, a career in different towns, marriage and family, loss of friends, close encounter with paralysis, travels, and most of all his love for the Bible. The memoirs include some of his personal poems with the latest one about the Covid 19. Underlining the memoirs is his faithfulness to God’s Word and living a productive and impactful life. At the end of the reading, you will find that God has been his faithful guide and shield all through his life.
Dr. Koh has portrayed an excellent abstract of his life story defining significant times such as childhood and adolescence, and the times he was touched by the grace of God. It is an interesting book, full of the spices of life, touching, sad, and sweet reminiscences of his past that will stir the heart of any reader. It is extremely well-written with a few sweet little poems here and there. Passionate touches of God in his life give one great inspiration and encouragement to strive on.
Memoirs of a Doctor is an excellent autobiography by Dr. Andrew C S Koh, my ex-student in MES Tanjong Malim in 1969. This book took me onto an extraordinary roller coaster ride through the time tunnel of history from 1952 to 2020 from Tanjong Malim across continents. It was undoubtedly an extraordinary journey of faith. An amazing journey into the past 6 decades of life. An enriching experience that was at times painful. A memorable, well-written, enjoyable, and lovely memoir to touch lives, Congratulations.
