About this work


"With few exceptions, hospitals and the medical profession are not charitable institutions, but businesses. Money is the bottom line - one way or the other. They promote their services and merchandise with the same determination as any other business and, just like any other business, have little motivation to promote or suggest alternatives that will not profit themselves. The public must learn to deal with them with the same independence, caution and discrimination they now excercise with the purchase of groceries, appliances and used cars. Consumers and caring professionals alike must thoroughly inform themselves."-- Back cover.
