Retired Amarillo Physician to Lead Discussion of The Spirit Catches you and You Fall Down

Wyatt McSpadden


Dr Phillip Periman spent the 40 years immediately prior to his retirement practicing medicine in his hometown of Amarillo, Texas. Deeply committed to his 55-year career in hematology and oncology, he maintained high standards for the level of care and commitment he held for his patients, his students, and his community at large. He graduated with a degree in History from Yale, and later got his medical degree from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. In medical school, he met his wife, Judy, who had her own career as a pediatric nurse. Now retired, Dr. Periman is the ideal candidate to lead Radio Readers in the discussion of The Spirit Catches you and You Fall Down.
