The healthcare system is so broken, it's time for doctors to strike
Zubin Damania thinks physicians should go on strike. "Physicians go into medicine with the best intentions," Damania said, "and then we find ourselves working in a system that's abhorrent to us. But if we rose up together, this broken system wouldn't stand long." Dr. Damania, founder of an innovative medical center in Las Vegas called Turntable Health, believes that the health-care system is so broken—and the proposed fixes so feeble—that doctors need to take matters into their own hands. "Practicing doctors on the front lines are the ones with the most skin in the game," he told The Daily Beast. "We can make changes that work. No one wants it more than we do."
