Title:  Doctored : the disillusionment of an American physician  

Sandy Jauhar, author of the bestseller  Intern, has now become a physician in private practice, and quickly finds out that medicine is being practiced in a way that is totally unexpected to him.  As with so many other things, the drive for the almighty dollar pervades the conditions under which he functions. He just wants to practice medicine, but realizes that he needs to perfect social skills so he can get along with his fellow physicians and thus generate referrals and other economic avenues.  Add in a wife, a physician herself , who seems to personify the term “money-hungry,” and Jauhar finds himself immensely impacted by stress, and questioning his own abilities. This is an interesting look into the reality of today’s medical world.
