Notable quotes from Dr. Mass’s interview:

We are spending more, and we are getting less all the time.
There’s fewer physicians that are employed who are willing to speak up about the system for risk of losing their job.
I woke up, and I was like “What happened to medicine?”
We’ve reached a point where physicians are spending 1/3 of their time with patient care, and 2/3 of their time with everything else.
85% of hospitals are ignoring the executive orders of two presidential administrations, and are not being transparent about their pricing.
You can’t fix the price of insulin or most drugs without reform of these Pharmacy Benefit managers.
