WHAT’S AILING MEDICINE?

WHAT’S AILING MEDICINE?

“DOCTORED” AUTHOR SANDEEP JAUHAR SPOKE AT THE DECATUR BOOK FESTIVAL ON SATURDAY 8/30, 4:15pm. Here he speaks to Khabar ON THE NEED FOR STRONGER MEDICINE. Cardiologist Sandeep Jauhar, director of the Heart Failure Program at Long Island Jewish Medical Center, is a reluctant physician. Well, in some ways. His candid take on American medicine won’t cheer your heart, but it is compelling. The doctor, who’s an author and a New York Times columnist, loves medicine, but he hates that we’ve ended up with dissatisfied patients, unhappy doctors, and a dysfunctional health care system. He discusses the commercialization of medicine, burnout, overutilization and waste, and the shortfall in primary care. A committed physician, Dr. Jauhar also talks about sensitive matters like end-of-life care and how cardiac care can be rendered more effective. His latest book Doctored is, in fact, a probing memoir that often reads like a novel. It’s a worthy—if sobering—sequel to his well-received Intern: A Doctor’s Initiation. The two books are good reading for any hope-to-be doctor. Read more »
