South River, New Jersey-based family physician and author Dr. Linda Girgis is our interview guest featured in Episode 1041 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”
We all know that the healthcare system in America has become broken and is in shambles. Now more than ever before, doctors are being pressured into seeing an ever-increasing patient load in less and less time while the patients themselves are getting caught in the crosshairs of the mayhem of the system that is driven by controlling costs while neglecting genuine care for the sick. This is something that a South River, New Jersey-based family physician named Dr. Linda Girgis has become greatly concerned about in recent years and now she has written a new book about this in what she describes as The War on Doctors: And the Destruction of US Healthcare.
Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Girgis discuss her passion for her patients and how the system has let them down, why physicians are under attack because of the mandates being placed on them by government regulations, how the healthcare system is broken and what can be done to fix it for both physicians and patients, why patients with chronic and rare diseases are getting inadequate care because of cost controls, how the pharmaceutical industry is running roughshod in the medical community because of a lack of oversight or transparency, and so much more! If you're frustrated by the state of modern medicine, then this is one conversation you don't want to miss out on.
