'The Vanishing Oath,' the First Physician-Focused Documentary on the Dangers of the American Healthcare System, Launches on DVD May 5
Date:4/27/2010

ary tests, unnecessary fees, defensive (i.e. mediocre) medicine and a culture of mistrust among healthcare professionals and patients
  • The decline of the doctor-patient relationship and how it directly inhibits the ability of providing accurate diagnoses and treatments

  • To illustrate, as never before, all facets of these dangerous trends, Dr. Flesher takes viewers into physicians' homes, offices and operating rooms across the United States.  In this profoundly moving film, audiences will witness the day-to-day physical, financial and psychological costs that today's healthcare system has inflicted upon its own healers.  

    "In a way, I had hoped that my frustrations as a physician were unique—that they were my own burdens and not those of my colleagues," said Dr. Flesher.  "By making this film, I quickly learned that the opposite was the case.  The obstruction of physicians and its direct effects on healthcare are far more profound and potentially devastating than I'd imagined." 

    Through interviews with university economists, an Emergency Medicine trailblazer, a malpractice attorney, medical academics, a divinity professor, current physicians, former physicians and more, "The Vanishing Oath" shows how years of mounting obstacles placed in the way of physicians have finally caught up with the patient.  As a result, the quality of care that Americans receive on a daily basis remains in peril.
