Drawing on 25 years of medical practice and research, Dr. H. Gilbert Welch and his colleagues, Dr. Lisa M. Schwartz and Dr. Steven Woloshin, have studied the effects of screenings and presumed preventative measures for disease and pre-disease. Examining the social, medical, and economic ramifications of a health care system that unnecessarily diagnoses and treats patients, Welch makes a reasoned call for change that would save us from countless unneeded surgeries, debilitating anxiety, and exorbitant costs.

A Must Read for All!
Where does Overdiagnosed rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This book is one of the best nonfiction titles ever from Audible. It answers many questions I've had about why so many people seem to be sick, why health care costs have escalated beyond belief, and why so many people are frightened by their own bodies and subjected to endless psychological and physical invasions by the medical establishment..
What was one of the most memorable moments of Overdiagnosed?
So many memorable moments and the feeling of enlightenment was so strong I listened to the book twice, and have recommended it to everyone I know. I feel we all owe it to ourselves, friends, and family to incorporate this information into our knowledge base to better deal with our world today.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Couldn't possibly listen to it in one sitting, but it merits going back to again and again.
