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.

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?


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

Hours and hours of compaining

Would you try another book from Sandeep Jauhar and/or Patrick Lawlor?

No way. The author seemed incredibly wrapped up in making money to send his kids to expensive private schools. So much complaining, I couldn't take it. Could have been a productive discussion about the real challenges of being a doctor, but instead it was a steady drip of unhelpful whining and hand wringing.
