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.

Stupid book

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

No way


What was most disappointing about Sandeep Jauhar’s story?

I hated this book, I could not even finish it, the guy basically complaining all the time and its all about his personal life. I felt he is insecure and he has lots of issues related to his culture, past and his family.


How could the performance have been better?

He needs psychotherapy.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Doctored?

The whole 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
