Abraham Verghese, a doctor and the author of Cutting for Stone, argues that doctors need to spend more time with their patients, but the system prevents them from doing so. He makes this point in a timely essay in the San Francisco Chronicle.

Verghese will discuss this and related topics in a speech to The Commonwealth Club in San Francisco August 12.
