It's Time to Clean Up This Mess: Texas Surgeon Points Out Numerous Flaws in American Health Care Industry
Date:7/2/2009

HOUSTON, July 2 /PRNewswire/ -- The insurance industry, lawyers and the Federal Drug Administration -- "The American Medical Mess" (published by iUniverse), by Charles Peter, MD, holds nothing back against nearly everyone involved in the health care industry in the United States.

Peter, a surgeon in Houston for more than 30 years, begins by telling the story of Ephraim McDowell and his work in the medical field many years ago and then relates it to the nearly two trillion dollars being spent yearly in the U.S. on health care today and the waste involved. With each chapter he shows the inefficiency and the maximizing of profits by nearly everyone who takes part in the process.

"Not only are there exorbitant liability premiums for doctors, nurses and hospitals, the cost of defensive medicine is even more," Peter said. "Everything that the government does is counterproductive -- health care is no exception."

He also points out that the FDA does little to serve the general populace as well as the pharmaceutical industry when it takes nearly 1.4 billion dollars to bring a new drug to the market that could help so many. Readers will also enjoy the example doctor bills that are included to help them see where every dime of their treatment would go. Peter also points out to look at your own bill carefully as they are many times inflated with procedures that never even took place!

But it's just not about what is being done wrong. Peter also lays out some ideas and answers on how the whole system can be changed and improved so that the waste, fraud and inefficiency is addressed.
