Doctored: The Disillusionment of an American Physician

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

In his acclaimed memoir Intern, Sandeep Jauhar chronicled the formative years of his residency at a prestigious New York City hospital. Doctored, his harrowing follow-up, observes the crisis of American medicine through the eyes of an attending cardiologist.
Hoping for the stability he needs to start a family, Jauhar 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.
Provoked by his unsettling experiences, Jauhar has written an introspective memoir that is also an impassioned plea for reform. With American medicine at a crossroads, Doctored is the important work of a writer unafraid to challenge the establishment and incite controversy.

Customer Reviews

Insightful and addicting writing.

As an emergency physician for 40 years, I connected with the account Dr Jauhar captured. He reflected on many of the frustrations and the cognitive dissonance suffered by the American doctor in a personal way. Rarely do we as physicians seriously think of a different career yet I believe most of us could be successful in many different occupations. There however, is something about the practice of medicine that holds us captive and repulses at the same time. Sandeep Jauhar was able to capture this and to weave it into the biography of his life in a telling way that kept me riveted for hours on end.
