Once a cherished, even sacred, vocation, medicine has become a business driven by profit. What made medicine turn its back on its central tenets of putting patients first? Dr. Dora Wang explores what happened, through the prism of her own research and experience. We watch as she struggles to maintain her standards as health care's priorities turn away from the care of patients toward improving the bottom line. Along the way we meet some of her patients, whose stories reveal an oft-ignored human side of our besieged system. As the medical landscape shifts beneath Wang, it becomes ever clearer that she cannot untangle the uncertain futures of her patients from her own. Part memoir and part rallying cry, The Kitchen Shrink is required reading for anyone interested in the voices of this country's vitally important health care debate.
