Too Much Medicine: A Doctor's Prescription for Better and More Affordable Health Care

Description

Why does America spend far more than any other country on medical care, yet its health care system is ranked 34th in the world by the World Health Organization?

As a busy physician in an active practice, Dennis Gottfried, M.D., understands the strengths and weaknesses of American medicine. In "Too Much Medicine: A Doctor's Prescription for Better and More Affordable Health Care," he describes the problems in the U.S. health care system and how medical decisions are really made. He discusses how overtesting and overtreatment do not lead to better care — and often do more harm than good.
