    My god you are so biased. If you can’t take a step back from your limited view as a doctor at a hospital, a hospital that sounds perfect apparently 🤦🏼‍♀️, then don’t review things like this. Between this and the John Oliver review, I don’t even want to follow you anymore.

      Dr Mike does make a very valid point on the mammogram bit.

        I don't wanna doubt the experts but isn't there a bit of a conflict of interests about an American doctor telling me american doctors aren't overcharging more than doctors of other countries?

          it's morally wrong for a country to not have free healthcare for its citizens

              what I got from this video is that insurance companies fucked us. The gov want's to get in on it and we fail and die in the process. We need doctors, that are real doctors now, that will just diagnose and treat your ailments...without any interference.

                    Doc, I feel like you're overcomplicating things. Towards the end of the episode, he(IIRC) does say "You need to talk with your doctor."

                      I heard about a study (idk how legit it is so be warned) that someone did where they took the price of a medical procedure in the United States and they found that for the same price, you could fly to another country, get the procedure there, live there for 3 years, get the procedure AGAIN, and come back for the same amount of money. The US healthcare system isn't just failing, it's in pieces and we're all walking on broken glass to get the one band aid left in the box.

                              You're almost like a dark haired Adam...You have the same hair lol I wish I was a handsome dr like you. Glad you like Adam. You definitely have to take what he says with a grain of salt. He is definitely trying to entertain, but I don't think he's doing it maliciously. In a lot of cases it's good that he's bringing attention to these issues and making people think about these issues. One last thing, though you are a very handsome dr, you're def a NERD lol but you seem like a really good guy and probably a good dr. Thank you for the video.

                                So Dr. Mike how come when i went to the hospital after a car accident they sent me a bill for $29,000. Then when that same bill was sent to my insurance company it was paid at $11,000. So basically if i didnt have insurance the hospital was very ready to take advantage of me and put me in extreme debt over an xray and ct scan!! It is ridiculous how badly they overcharge!!!

                                  This seems like a bit of an overreaction to Adam's mammogram episode. What I got from it was not that I or other women need to stop getting mammograms but that we dont need to be obsessed with getting mammograms so often. Basically Adam is saying get mammograms in moderation. He never said or implied that women just shouldn't get them at all.

                                    Hospitals need to turn a profit in order to exist, sure, but you do realize he just said they pay more per person than any other developed nation? not just more, but significantly more. Now, why would that be? do doctors and nurses get paid more? does the medicine or schooling cost more? or is it because its not universal? When hospitals are privately owned, they could have the mentality of "a patient cured is a customer lost' meaning, if you cure a patient of their cancer, you can't keep billing them. But if its funded by the gonvernemnt, and paid for at cost through taxes. By curing the patient of their sickness, will end up saving them money rather than costing them it. Its a system where the incentive is changed.

                                      When people say healthcare in other countries are rationalize but it turns it that very thing is happening in the US and we pay more then them.

                                                  Free market just doesn't work for some things, roads-everyone needs those, health care-everyone needs this, and it's too complicated and the customer is in no shape to shop around when they need it. Canada is right next door, ask them, most like their system. They can afford it, and still have the same standard of living as here. Why make insurance cos. rich?

                                                        TLDR of the video:
                                                        Adam is right but he isn’t right.

                                                          It’s not accurate to say that hospitals need to turn a profit in order to exist. They need to pay the bills, but they do not need to profit. For generations, hospitals were non-profit and existed quite successfully. Once profit became the motive, prices skyrocketed. That’s not the only factor in rising prices, of course, but it’s a big one.

                                                                                      and $3000 for an EKG that took 3 minutes to perform.
                                                                                      yeah, i had no copay, but i pay a premium every month and i don't go to the doctor every month.

                                                                                          There are a fair amount of people in my life that think that American hospitals are they best in the world at everything and that other countries are essentially garbage. Whenever I tell people I had surgery in Japan, they go off about how they could never do such a thing and would come home right away. Japan is a modern country with great surgeons. Just like in the states, you gotta find the right person.

Adam's show has done a great job with providing accurate information clearly and always following it up with helpful advice (if there is any) on all the matters. The present the problem and then tell the person how to go about it. Also, the part about the statesitics, as someone who watches you should know their tone. They recognize the importance of presenting statistics and was out right saying it in the show.
