Parade magazine, Tom Brokaw: What Every Patient Should Know…Break down the mystique of medicine — “When you walk into a doctor’s office you’ve got to have the same attitude you would about anything else. You’ve got to ask tough questions and you’ve got to not be afraid to challenge their credentials. There’s a lot of arrogance in the medical community. There are good, reliable websites you can go to for information— the Mayo Clinic, the Cleveland Clinic, Johns Hopkins. In my case I thought, ‘I’m on the Board of the Mayo Clinic, they did the diagnosis and they’re going to send me to Sloan-Kettering, which has a big reputation.’

One way some large employers are dealing with this problem is to direct employees to “centers of excellence,” where providers practice conservative medicine. Walmart employees, for example, have no out-of-pocket costs at all if they go to one of six places: the Cleveland Clinic; the Mayo Clinic…
