Why Is It So Hard To Find A Doctor?

Dr. Zubin Damania On What's Happened To Medicine
11

Early access to December 12, 2022 edition

Zubin Damania is a Stanford trained physician and founder of Turntable Health, an innovative health care clinic and early model of “Health 3.0.” He spent many years working with patients in hospitals, during which he launched a shadow career on YouTube under the pseudonym ZDoggMD. He is now host of the hugely successful podcast the ZDoggMD Show, where he talks about public health and problems within the medical field. In this conversation, Zubin explains not only why it’s so hard to find a doctor these days but why it’s so hard to be a doctor. He also talks about why people in the medical field are prone to groupthink, why Obamacare made things worse, and how self-employed people who buy their own insurance (like Meghan) might begin to rethink their whole approach. 

Guest Bio:  

Dr. Zubin Damania is an internist and former hospitalist and now a leader in the movement to build a new model of health care. He is the host of the ZDoggMD show.
