The special relationship of trust and openness between doctor & patient has been vital for centuries. But, (HMOs) threaten not only quality but the essential doctor / patient bond. With more than 30 years experience in medicine, Dr. Makover argues eloquently and authoritatively for a return to the professionalism that puts patients' needs first. He calls for the healthcare debate to be stripped from the hands of politicians, businessmen, insurance providers, and lawyers, and given back to patients and independent, self-employed doctors. He closely examines facts and fallacies, and the pros and cons of managed care, and suggests better ways to finance healthcare.
