Editorial Reviews

Review

"Dorin, an anesthesiologist, naval officer, and medical administrator, aptly analyzes the US health care system and exposes its vulnerabilities. Who better than an anesthesiologist to look for potential weaknesses and devise a contingency plan-it is what he does every day….Jihad and American Medicine will open readers' eyes and prompt them to take medical security more personally. If it does, Dorin will have achieved his goal."

Journal of the American Medical Association



"[T]akes full measure of the state of American health care from a security perspective. Dr. Dorin, medical director at the Sharp Grossmont Plaza Surgery Center in San Diego, depicts a medical system riddled with loopholes that could be abused by terrorists or by single individuals intent on causing harm. He argues all health entities are at high risk for terrorist attack, because they represent the most vulnerable of 'soft targets' of our nation's infrastructure….Dr. Dorin's writing style is provocative, with attention-grabbing chapter headings….[H]e said he wrote the book not to make a political statement but to improve the health system and save lives."

Anesthesiology News

Review

"Dr. Dorin sounds the alarm on two critical and related fronts. First, he details the recognized current safety failings of our medical-care system. That alone is worthy of a read. Then, thinking far beyond the box, he presents scenarios by which our dedicated and fanatical Jihadist enemies might exploit those big chinks in that medical-care safety armor. It's thoughtful and thought-provoking. A must read for anyone who is or might ever be a patient. And, that means every American."

Format: Hardcover
This book by Doctor Dorin is the first breakthrough text to provide a detailed prescription for health care workers, academicians, and politicians to overhaul the way medicine is delivered--toward to goal of reducing medical errors and the potential for purposeful 'mischief'!

I highly (and emphatically) recommend this book!!
