Providers Properties and Performance

Mar 16, 2021

Trisha continues her conversation with Dr. Alejandro Badia, an orthopedic surgeon focusing on hand and upper extremities based out of Miami, Florida. He operates Badia Hand to Shoulder Center, The Surgery Center at Doral, and the immediate orthopedic care center OrthoNOW. During the pandemic, he published his book Healthcare from The Trenches: An Insider Account of the Complex Barriers of U.S. Healthcare from the Providers and Patients' Perspective. His goal is to generate awareness and educate people on how insurance companies and government regulation are causing healthcare costs to skyrocket and how it affects the clinician’s ability to provide care.
