The Slippery Slope of Healthcare with Dr. Steve Z Kussin MD

In his new book, THE SLIPPERY SLOPE OF HEALTHCARE: Why Bad Things Happen to Healthy Patients and How to Avoid Them,  Dr. Kussin discusses what happens to perfectly healthy people who are the unwitting victims of medical care’s three-ring circus: over-selling, over-diagnosis, and over-treatment that results in unintended consequences. The slippery slope of healthcare is “a cascade of escalating misfortunes produced by more tests with incrementally greater risk, expense, and fewer benefits.”
