The Washington Post – Book Review, Doctored

“While ‘Being Mortal’ examines the medical field at large, ‘Doctored,‘ a memoir of cardiologist Sandeep Jauhar’s first few years in practice, is a dispiriting portrait of how working as a physician feels. Equal parts confession, rant and exposé, the book describes how money worries and an excessive workload led the newly minted specialist to lose sight, at least for a while, of the ideals that had motivated him to become a doctor. Jauhar, the grandson of a New Delhi physician, admits that he embarked on his first job as a heart specialist with unrealistic expectations about the prestige and earning power it would confer. Partly in defense of his actions, he offers a blistering critique of the business of medicine as he experienced it — a business that, in his view, corrupts doctors by rewarding them for providing unneeded tests and treatments.”
