Boston Globe – Book Review, Doctored

“In the first pages of his bold and fascinating new memoir, “Doctored: The Disillusionment of an American Physician,” Sandeep Jauhar, a cardiologist now in his 40s, describes “the halcyon days of the mid-twentieth century” when physicians were “highly admired professionals” who “largely set their own hours and . . . fees.” Medical miracles like the polio vaccine were in the news and TV shows such as “Marcus Welby, M.D.” portrayed doctors as saints.
