About the Book

The medical profession today is not controlled by doctors or nurses. It's controlled by corporations, administrators, and bureaucrats—it's become a business. Scrubbed Out presents a critique of the today's business of medicine and the profit-driven mindset that ignores human needs. Salah D. Salman is a doctor himself, concerned with the double standards and unscrupulous dealings of today's community of health care decision-makers. He does not hesitate to place the blame where it belongs—sometimes even with major teaching institutions and professional societies. Dr. Salman believes that a revolution is necessary to turn the system around, and offers the radical solutions necessary to reverse the trends of a downward-spiraling industry.
