While the American health care system is commonly maligned for being inefficient, ineffective and costly, Stewart Segal, M.D., tends to adopt a different perspective and believes that when our health care system is working, it is unbeatable.

Segal, who regularly writes on this topic on his blog LiveWellthy, is a private practitioner and the founder of the Lake Zurich Family Treatment Center in Illinois. Segal sits down with host Anne Ryder to share a story depicting the success of the American health care system and what he considers to be our system's strengths.
