What can we learn from the experience of a 90-year-old patient who is told point-blank “You’ll be dead in a year!” and who survives to tell the story?
This is a first of its kind in the annals of the Accad and Koka Report. The episode starts with a 15-minute interview conducted by Dr. Koka of a patient of his, about her journey through the healthcare system. After the interview, we have an in-depth conversation, prompted by the patient’s testimony, about what to take into consideration when making decisions for elderly patients who contemplate expensive and risky procedures.
