This review is from: Doctored: The Disillusionment of an American Physician (Kindle Edition)
You absolutely must read this book before your next health checkup or hospital visit. It is a huge understatement to say that Dr. Jauhar's book is eye-opening, intelligent, straight-forward, enlightening and shocking. Doctored: The Disillusionment of an American Physician, is a major cautionary tale of were we actually are in 21st century American medicine. It is a very personal, professional and highly revealing look at our US health and medical industry that simultaneously leaves you with a nauseous and hopeful feeling. He also details in clear-speak how we can and must still do far better -- though in reality, genuine improvements may not happen before our grand kids have kids. Even if our Affordable Care Act is a good first step, after reading just the first chapter of Dr. Sandeep Jauhar's latest book, I now realize the ACA is probably just a mere baby step compared to where we still have to go. I wouldn't read Doctored if I was already laying in a hospital bed, fearing it might stress me more. Dr. Jauhar is clearly speaking from experience and the trenches. Everyone I know and love over and under 50 will be asked to read Doctored.
