There have been many complaints about this series of books from long-time residents of Bryson City, North Carolina. Some residents felt that the author poked fun at the small town values of the town's residents. While there are some funny moments in the book, it doesn't feel as though the author is purposefully aiming to make fun. The author has also changed the names to protect the privacy of his patients and others that appear in the series.
