The Criminalization of Medicine: America's War on Doctors By Ronald T. Libby
2007 | 226 Pages | ISBN: 0313345465 | PDF | 2 MB
My wife and I are both physicians and I have just started reading this book but cannot believe how well it parallels our experiences, readings and feelings over the past 20 years as we have watched the slow tortuous decline of physicians and medical practice. This is not unique to America although it is finding its zenith in America. A friend of mine from Africa who practices in the US told me his father, who is an African lawyer told him 25 years ago not to go into medicine because attorney organizations internationally had declared war on healthcare providers and gave fair warning to his son not to go there. I've now completed the book and my wife is reading it. First of all it is very well written and easy to read. It is not too long and I finished it in a couple of days. This is the first organized work that I have seen about the forces, propaganda and shocking bias that the justice department, congress, the FBI, OIG, congress and even presidents have viciously applied to healthcare providers. It is no wonder that my wife and I have felt very deeply that we, as physicians have been made second class citizens by much of the population and almost all of the lawyers and legal system. There are some areas that could have been more emphasized such as the role of the numerous health care review organizations set up during the Clinton era, public health programs set up at many universities to scrutinize in detail every flaw that the microscope of government can focus on healthcare. Overall I loved this book and hope that further research into the machinery that has been and is currently working to crush healthcare providers can be revealed. I also feel that many of the current problems in society have been swept under the carpet while excess time and billions of dollars have been spent scapegoating healthcare providers. We had a national data bank to track physicians 20 years ago but today have no national data bank for pedophiles. Go figure. Great book, read it now if you are in or want to go into healthcare. By the way I came from a healthcare family and like many of my partners and friends we are near the end of the "medical" families.
