John Bruchalski, M.D., earned his medical degree from the University of South Alabama College of Medicine in 1987. He completed his OB/GYN residency at Eastern Virginia Medical Center and the Jones Institute for Reproductive Medicine in Norfolk, Virginia, in 1991. He received board certification in 1993. He is the Founder and President of Divine Mercy Care and the Founder of Tepeyac OB/GYN in Fairfax, Virginia.
After a terrible misjudgment in the delivery room, Dr. John Bruchalski realized that with every pregnant woman he attends, there are two patients—the mother and her unborn child. In addition to this discovery, two remarkable spiritual experiences deepened his understanding of the kind of man he had become and the one he was called to be.
Two Patients is the story of how a physician who practiced abortion came to question the medical status quo and to pioneer an approach to reproductive medicine that respects female fertility, honors the dignity of unborn children, and takes care to patients regardless of their financial situation. Such health care, writes Dr. John Bruchalski, is merciful medicine, and his memoir gives a glimpse of just how merciful the relationship between a doctor and his two patients—mother and child— can be.
This beautiful story provides a window into the pressures of working in the medical community; the healing mercy of God as he meets our human brokenness; and most importantly, the powerful strength of God’s grace when we surrender to his call. Blessed as one of Dr. Bruchalski’s many patients, I can personally attest to the power of the Holy Spirit present in his work! This book is an inspiration to any pro-lifer and to anyone answering the noble call of medicine.
President, March for Life
Dr. Bruchalski has written an inspiring story of love and redemption that speaks to the mind and the heart, and it should be in every medical school library in America. ‑ is book is concrete proof that where faith and science meet, wisdom is born. A must-read for all doctors, nurses, and expectant parents!
