As a concerned patient, family member, or friend, you may have questions or wonder if there's a different treatment plan available.

Sometimes your doctor doesn't know best, and it's important to know your options to receive the best affordable and effective care out there.

How can you learn to manage your doctor?

Listen in as Patrick Neustatter, MD, shares how you can medically emancipate yourself from the tyrannical aspects of traditional healthcare and still get effective and affordable care.
