Doctored

The Disillusionment of an American Physician

by Sandeep Jauhar

CD-Audio Publication Date: 28/10/2014

 
Hoping for the stability he needs to start a family, Sandeep Jauhar, an attending cardiologist, accepts a position at a massive teaching hospital on the outskirts of Queens. With a decade's worth of elite medical training behind him, he is eager to settle down and reap the rewards of countless sleepless nights. Instead, he is confronted with sobering truths. Doctors' morale is low and getting lower. Blatant cronyism determines patient referrals, corporate ties distort medical decisions, and unnecessary tests are routinely performed in order to generate income. Meanwhile, a single patient in Jauhar's hospital might see fifteen specialists in one stay and still fail to receive a full picture of his actual condition. In Doctored, Jauhar chronicles the formative years of his residency while observing firsthand the crisis of American medicine through the eyes of a cardiologist.
