Marty Makary, M.D., John Hopkins Surgeon

790 KABC, October 27, 2019

The United States health care system is in crisis. And, the impact on every one of us is profound. We are all being gouged and cheated, and the money interests are getting away with it, so says one of America’s leading health care experts, Johns Hopkins surgeon, Dr. Marty Makary. One in five Americans now has medical debt and rising health care costs threaten every small business and individual in this country. Dr. Makary talks to Alan and Kerri about why the industry has become a bubble, on the verge of bursting. His new book "The Price We Pay” paints a vivid picture of price-gouging, middlemen, and a series of elusive money games that will blow your mind. The truth comes out on Gurvey’s Law, as Dr. Makary will tell you what you can do to fight against your high medical bills and just how you are being cheated. He will also tell us how the system can be saved. This is a show that you just can’t afford to miss. Gurvey’s Law airs Sundays at 5 p.m. on KABC-AM 790 TalkRadio and streaming live on kabc.com, and will be available on podcast shortly thereafter to be heard at any time at Apple Podcasts and audioBoom!
