Memoirs of a Doctor



Memoirs of a doctor,

Testimonies from readers of Memoirs of a Doctor, an extraordinary journey of faith across continents that will encourage, enlighten, and empower you to fulfill your God-ordained destiny, by Dr. Andrew C S Koh.

Arch Bishop Ng Moon Hing, Anglican Arch Bishop of West Malaysia

Indeed, a truthful and insightful journey into the life of a doctor. This is an easy and interesting book and when someone picks up to read, he will not put it down until the last page. A true, interesting, and colorful life story of an ordinary person who becomes a cardiologist with the help and guidance of the One and True God, Jesus Christ. This book shows us that though we may not believe or know God, He is always there to plan and script our lives. The author wished to share with his readers that when one does know this God, Jesus Christ, He will be even more ready to prepare and usher them towards the direction where they can find security, meaning, blessing, and joy. The panoramic view of a village boy to a city doctor, interspersed with beautiful poems, has shown how an honest, innocent young person faced and swam in the ocean of sophisticated and challenging turbulence. His faith in Jesus Christ has become an oasis for him in the world of struggles, unending expectations, and stressful pressures. A book I find great relief and comfort for the soul.

Pastor and Ex Principal of Tung Ling Seminary Malaysia 

I found reading this book very inspiring as Dr. Andrew Koh shares stories about his childhood, education, a career in different towns,  marriage, family, loss of friends, close encounter with paralysis,  travels, and most of all his love for the Bible. The memoirs include some of his personal poems with the latest one about the Covid 19. Underlining the memoirs is his faithfulness to God, living out a productive and impactful life. At the end of the reading, you will find that God has been his faithful guide and shield all through his life.

This book is an amazing story of one great cardiologist. Such an honour to be your daughter in law and a privilege to know you on a personal level, papa. Definitely a must read for everyone. A moving book as well as refreshingly candid that will be deeply inspirational to many.

Pastor Joshua Tan, Malaysia

A very inspiring and encouraging masterpiece presented enthusiastically and passionately. Clearly, the hand of God is with Dr. Andrew C S Koh and transforming him from a nobody into a giant for the Kingdom of God. Go forth, the best is yet to come. May you continue to be a blessing for many via your writings and other endeavors.

Dato KRA Naidu, Malaysia

Memoirs of a Doctor is an excellent autobiography by Dr. Andrew C S Koh, my ex-student in Methodist English School Tanjong Malim way back in 1969. This book took me on a roller coaster ride through the turbulent time tunnel from 1952 to 2020, from Tanjong Malim across continents. It was undoubtedly an extraordinary journey of faith. It is an amazing chance to go back into the past to enjoy the memories from down memory lane. This experience is personally enriching and at times painful. A memorable, well-written, enjoyable, and lovely memoir to touch lives, Congratulations. 

Dr. Robert Leong, USA

Dr. Koh provided glimpses of his life through the years in a short, loveable, and easy-to-read book. I enjoyed his reminiscing about the kind of life he used to live in the cities and villages in Malaysia before the arrival of social media. His varied experiences as a government, private, and military physician were a novelty to read as well. I would have wanted him to elaborate more on some of the key events in his life, so perhaps there’s room for a sequel or version 2.0

Dr Wong Che Hoa, Malaysia

A well-written Memoir by Dr. Andrew C S Koh, a personal friend for the past 30 years. It provides inspiration to all young aspirants who want to emulate Dr. Andrew‘s footsteps to success both professionally and spiritually. Congratulations on the well-written and meticulous recapture of your life history in words. May God bless you abundantly.

Dr. Kevin, Malaysia

Such a sweet and colorful life you lead through with God being with you with or without your knowledge as He scripts your life. May God lead us through the current Covid storm. Amen and praise to Him!

Carol Chow, Malaysia

Dr. Andrew Koh has portrayed an excellent abstract of his life story defining significant times such as childhood and adolescence, and the times he was touched by the grace of God. It is an interesting book, full of the spices of life, touching, sad, and sweet reminiscences of his past that will stir the heart of any reader. It is extremely well-written with a few sweet little poems here and there. Passionate touches of God in his life gives great inspiration and encouragement to strive on.

Daniel Wong, Malaysia

Dr. Andrew Koh’s book, memoirs of a Doctor bears testimony to what the Word of God is saying to him even to this very day. There is no shadow of a doubt that he has heard the voice of the Lord Jesus Christ, our chief shepherd. I am truly encouraged, blessed,  and touched by his testimonies.

Steven Hiok, Auckland, New Zealand

Dr. Andrew C S Koh’s memoir is a beautiful narration of his life story and journey of faith. It is written in simple English and the book is easy to read. You will be encouraged and inspired, as I was, by his stories and his life as a Christian.

JS Solomon, Malaysia

The story of your life can be summarised in one word AMAZING. I praise and thank God  for you and and all what you have done to spread the gospel and the precious Word  of God. My wife and I remembered you and your wife when you were in Taiping for a short while in the 1970s. May God continue to bless you and your ministry. Hallelujah! Praise the Lord.

Lim Seng Choon, Malaysia

The book consists of Dr. Andrew C S Koh’s growing up years in Tanjong Malim , his pre-university in Telok Intan, and medical education in Kuala Lumpur. After that, he served  at various government hospitals, and Malaysian Air force before continuing his specialisation in cardiology. He retired in January 2020. It is well written and easy to read. Congratulations.

Albert Cherk, Melbourne, Australia

Your book “Memoirs of A Doctor”, is very interesting, educational as well as inspirational. I admire the way you and your wife achieved so much in the medical and dental fields, raising such a wonderful family, apart from contributing to the Christian life and education in Malaysia, a rare feat indeed. You should be very proud of yourselves coming from a background not dissimilar to mine.

Dr Francis Ha

Tells the life of a dear friend and medical MU classmate. From his humble beginning in a small village  Tanjung Malim to his retirement as a cardiologist in Ipoh in 2020, his life, his career, his passion was and is moulded by God Almighty. Gods hand was evident all the way through success and through struggles in his own life and the lives of a rather large, present standards, family of 7 grandchildren from his 3 sons! A man of great belief, A man of great academia, A man full of love and care.
