New novel by Robert B. Goos, MD, explores treatment options for veterans

Post-traumatic stress disorder is not just a mental issue or a physical issue – it’s a spiritual issue, a wound to the soul,” Goos said.

Post-traumatic stress disorder is a fact of life for many veterans who serve during wartime. Unfortunately, many of these veterans are not receiving the treatment they need. Robert B. Goos, MD, has dedicated his career to finding a better way.

Goos spent nearly 10 years as a psychiatrist with the Veterans Healthcare Administration. His experience left him frustrated with the lack of care for the nation’s warriors. With that in mind, he wrote his new science fiction novel, “Portal to Erytheum,” as an allegory for the agony trauma leaves in its wake and potential alternative healing options.

“Post-traumatic stress disorder is not just a mental issue or a physical issue – it’s a spiritual issue, a wound to the soul,” Goos said. “It derails the lives of its victims. This book is about helping them live, even love again.”

Goos believes the VA, in its current iteration, is incapable of treating veterans with the resources necessary for healing. He hopes readers will see his book as a wake-up call.

“I care about what happens to our nation’s veterans,” Goos said. “I didn’t write this book to criticize our current healthcare system, but to begin a discussion on how we can make it better.”
