Dear Dr. Skeptic, Thanks for your kind words about Overtreated. When it was published, in , there were a lot of doctors and patients who looked at me as if my hair were on fire or I needed my dose of Thorazine, because I was clearly crazy to be talking about overtreatment when everybody in America knew the problem with our health care system was undertreatment due to lack of insurance. Times have changed a bit, and I'm pleased to see the attention that overtreatment and overdiagnosis "overuse" as I think we should probably call it are getting in the popular press and within the medical community.

WHICH PROSTATE CANCERS REALLY NEED TREATMENT?

Written with no hyperbole, it will be difficult to dismiss this book as inflammatory, as the facts speak for themselves. Overtreated is laced with exhaustive, well-researched studies that give credibility to the true anecdotal stories peppered throughout the book. What you will discover will be quite alien to what we have been led to believe. You will come to understand that more is not better. Yet in all of the discussions about health care reform, have you ever heard overtreatment being discussed? It is difficult to accept the concept of being overtreated. Yet extensive studies done all over the country have proven that in areas and hospitals where more drugs and procedures and tests were performed, patients did no better than in places where less was offered.

Providers, put on an open mind and pick up this book…immediately. Based on extensive research and interviews, Brownlee picks apart the U. I was intrigued but a bit reluctant to pick up this book. Providers are often blamed for the problems our health system faces. Did you know that depending on where you live, your likelihood of having a procedure such as a spinal fusion or a cardiac catheterization increases?
