We read an essay recently by Dr. Michael Rothberg about the all-too-common journey that his father took through the health care system. Dr. Rothberg is vice chair for research at the medicine institute at the Cleveland Clinic. And his title speaks volumes: The $50,000 physical,” says host Barbara Lewis.
