Our country’s healthcare system needs serious work—but how did it get so bad? In An American Sickness, award-winning New York Times reporter Dr. Elisabeth Rosenthal breaks down the nature of this affliction, explaining the symptoms, identifying the causes, and outlining a course of treatment. Rosenthal shares strategies on how to decode medical doublespeak, avoid the pitfalls of the pharmaceuticals racket, and get the care you need. She discusses the doctor-patient relationship, explaining why the medical profession lacks transparency and how patients can navigate the byzantine system. Rosenthal lays out the social and financial incentives that have encouraged a deeply flawed system and outlines a plan for its rehabilitation.
