Is anyone out there satisfied with our medical systems in the United States?
As I’ve been on a podcast, zoom, and interviewing extravaganza since the release of my medical thriller, The Human Trial, in September, I’ve had reason to ask this question repeatedly. And I have yet to have one person say unequivocally ‘Yes!’ And that includes the medical doctors I’ve asked.
We all know the problems. Extremely high costs, rare cures, more commonly life-extensions from days to months to years if lucky, debilitating so-called “side effects,” misery, and unbearable pressures when we or our loved ones are already sick.
I’d like take these issues separately one-by-one as I blog about my book, the first of a medical thriller trilogy. That way I can delve more deeply into each area. I hope you’ll join me on this journey to investigate what is wrong with healthcare in the US. And what we might do individually and collectively about it.
