Dr. Dipak Desai ran a colonoscopy mill in Vegas, cutting corners, reusing syringes and instruments, and infecting dozens with hepatitis C resulting in 2 deaths.
He recently died of a stroke in prison. What can we learn from his story? Health 1.0, fee for service mis-incentives, the role of staff and whistleblowers, and the betrayal of the community by a trusted caregiver.
This episode was streamed live from Hollywood, CA where ZDoggMD is lobbying for Dr. Desai to get a posthumous star on the Hollywood Walk of Shame.
