From the reviews:

"This book discusses points of tension in the U.S. healthcare system and places the burden on readers to critically think about the paradoxes consumers face. … The intended audience includes health providers and consumers." (Carole A. Kenner, Doody’s Review Service, February, 2009)

"Disease, Diagnoses, and Dollars is an exceptionally practical, carefully argued study of what can be done to control health care costs by improving the approach to medical decision making. Kaplan persuasively demonstrates the practical wisdom he has learned from wide-ranging research and insightful clinical observations. His book challenges the assumptions of patients and physicians. I believe that many of his concrete recommendations can save not only dollars but the health of patients and the satisfaction of physicians in their professional practice." (James F. Bresnahan,  JAMA, Vol 302, No. 3)
