Ed Wallace Drives Into Health Care Debate
In his latest Business Week column, KLIF's Ed Wallace documents the case of "Judi, a news assignments manager for a Dallas TV news operation," who went to see several docs and specialists as she began experiencing "creeping numbness across her upper right abdomen." She was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis -- then told, nope, that's not it, so sorry. Nonetheless, writes Wallace, Judi's neurologist "said she wanted Judi to start the treatment as if her tests had come back positive," which would have been expensive and come with risky side effects ... like, oh, death. It's but the third part of a five-part series about health care; this one's headlined "Health Care in Crisis: Overmedicating America."
