Patients at Risk

Rebekah Bernard MD and Niran Al-Agba MD

Patients at Risk exposes the political maneuvering and corporate greed that has led to the replacement of physicians by lesser trained practitioners, including nurse practitioners and physician assistants.

This is a story that has not yet been told, and one that has dangerous repercussions for all Americans.
