Written by a busy physician in active practice, Too Much Medicine is foremost about providing people with the best healthcare. Gottfried understands the strengths and weaknesses of American medicine and explains in plain language the reasons for needless, excessive, and often harmful healthcare, and how to prevent it.

Dr. Gottfried has a long first-hand knowledge of how medical decisions are made and why concern for the patient’s well-being often gets muddied by less noble, and often more expensive, motives that cause medical costs and health insurance rates to skyrocket. In the process of explaining the failures of our medical system, Dr. Gottfried provides information that will enable readers to take control of their own medical destiny, as well to offer solutions to the question of what our government can do about Too Much Medicine, and the dramatic reduction in health care costs.
