Robert Lesslie’s story collection Angels in the ER was called “a chronicle of mankind at its best” by actor Richard Thomas. Readers have agreed—the book has sold over 125,000 copies! Now, in Angels on Call, Dr. Lesslie chronicles more incidents and people from his 25 years in the ER.

This fast-paced, inspiring, and thought-provoking volume reveals many nurses, doctors, patients, and friends to be “angels” in their own way. Readers will be captivated as they meet…

  • patients who choose life despite difficult circumstances
  • people whose condition of body—or soul—demands split-second action
  • fathers, mothers, and children as they triumph over difficulty
  • individuals who embrace hope—for themselves and others

Woven throughout is a question: Are we “on call”—are we available—to help others? Readers will be inspired to consider this question as they share intimate joys and struggles of people just like them.


Fast-paced and inspiring, this collection reveals many nurses, doctors, patients, and friends to be “angels” in their own way.

I really liked this book - composed of case-stories of patients this ER Dr. has met over the years in South Carolina. But it could be any emergency room... He writes clearly,without much medical jargon, and focuses on the patient.He has a sense of humor shown by some pranks he played (when it wasn't busy). His patients are lucky to have such a caring & wise doctor.
