We are joined by Edward Hoffer, an internal medicine physician, to explore the alarming levels of waste plaguing the U.S. health care system. Together, we shine a light on the various culprits behind this inefficiency, ranging from unnecessary treatments to bloated administrative costs. Edward sheds light on the root causes of this pervasive issue and proposes potential strategies to tackle it head-on. By offering a unique perspective on the factors driving health care expenditure in America, he prompts us to rethink our approach to delivering and funding health care services.

Edward Hoffer is an internal medicine physician and author of Prescription for Bankruptcy: A doctor’s perspective on America’s failing health care system and how we can fix it.

He discusses the KevinMD article, “One person’s wasteful medical spending is another person’s income.”
