Amazon Book Data:  It's the year 2021. Medicine has become corporatized, and proprietary treatments are closely guarded secrets. The mysterious Aesculapian Healers offer complete cures of most illnesses with a money-back guarantee, but the outrageous fees have given them a reputation as medical pirates. When recent medical school graduate Wesley Anderson is approached to become a Healer, he reluctantly signs on, hoping to obtain a cure for his father's heart disease and a solution to his family's money troubles. But he soon discovers that there are dark secrets behind the brilliant cures. As Aesculapian practices become increasingly disturbing, a conflicted Wesley-torn between his conscience and the seduction of power-joins a group of dissidents. The atmosphere quickly becomes deadly as they uncover a plan involving human experimentation, and realize that the lives of millions hang in the balance.

Hey Shellie, really looking forward to review of Dante's Journey. Been seeing this one out there on my Goodreads.
Seems appealing.

I thought so... we shall see.

JC seems high energy as well as smart, did you see his nerdy bio?

Opps I thought you had posted on Dante's Journey.

Yes this medical one looks good. I love this kind of theme since I did take pre-nursing courses out of high school. I enjoyed it but flaked out in the end since I preferred the beach to the hospital... go figure?

Did you see the author's site on Goodreads I added a picture there for the publicist.
