Publisher's Summary

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 15 specialists in one stay and still fail to receive a full picture of his actual condition.
In Doctored, Jauhar has chronicled the formative years of his residency while observing first-hand the crisis of American medicine through the eyes of a cardiologist.

Frank, inside perspective on the follies of unintended consequences in medical reform

It is also a personal story, touching on the common midlife crisis and search for professional meaning as a career in medicine did not turn quite as expected. The reality of skewed incentives in the field, overdiagnosis, and over-treatment does not get the publicity of under-access to healthcare, although they probably are related. Reviewers who accuse the author of *&^ing that he does not make enough money either completely missed the point or did not finish the book.

As enjoyable as a heart attack

What would have made Doctored better?

If it were about anything other than banal stories from a dude who went into medicine just to impress his parents. There is no evidence base. Plenty of doctors have similar difficult but don't become bitter. Contains no actionable information.

Would you ever listen to anything by Sandeep Jauhar again?

Never

Would you be willing to try another one of Patrick Lawlor’s performances?
