There are a small number of physicians who are lazy, incompetent or unscrupulous, and the patient needs to know how to recognize these individuals.
LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) February 15, 2016
In “Predatory Medicine,” Dr. J. S. Vangrow presents a factual and provocative account of his personal experiences as a cardiologist after 38 years in private practice, exposing unsettling and unethical aspects of the healthcare industry that do not put patients’ best interests first.
Vangrow documents how he discovered that the systems ostensibly designed to protect the patient too often fail, and describes how today’s complex and evolving healthcare system which, despite impressive technological advances, allows such behavior to persist and may even facilitate it.
“Some of the recent advancements in medicine are causing the interaction between patient and doctor to become impersonal and actually can facilitate improper care,” Vangrow said.
In his book, Vangrow provides readers with some guidelines, known as the Commandments for Patient Preservation, to help them avoid the hazards of being in the healthcare system and assess the quality of medical care they receive if they become ill.
“The average individual who seeks medical care has little knowledge of medicine and presumes the doctor knows what he or she is doing and is not to be questioned,” Vangrow said. “In actuality, there are a small number of physicians who are lazy, incompetent or unscrupulous, and the patient needs to know how to recognize these individuals.”
