Summary
Dr. Brawley exposes the underbelly of healthcare today--the under-treatment of the poor, the over-treatment of the rich, the financial conflicts of interests physicians face, insurance that doesn't demand the best (or even cheapest) care, and a pharmaceutical behemoth concerned with selling drugs, not providing health
