About this item

A trip to the doctor is almost a guarantee of misery. Youll make an appointment months in advance. Youll probably wait for several hours until you hear the doctor will see you nowbut only for fifteen minutes! Then youll wait even longer for lab tests, the results of which youll likely never see, unless they indicate further and more invasive tests, most of which will probably prove unnecessary much like physicals themselves. And your bill will be astronomical. In The Patient Will See You Now, Eric Topol, one of the nations top physicians, shows why medicine does not have to be that way. Instead, you could use your smartphone to get rapid test results from one drop of blood, monitor your vital signs both day and night, and use an artificially intelligent algorithm to receive a diagnosis without having to see a doctor, all at a small fraction of the cost imposed by our modern healthcare system.
