Ep. 84 “You’ll Be Dead in a Year!” A Patient’s Journey Through the Healthcare System

Anish Koka, MD

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.
