Imagine trusting a doctor, with the best reputation in the state, to do surgery on your eyes. Now imagine the worst of outcomes: blindness in an eye that you learn never needed surgery and finding out that the medical center where you were treated had been ignoring situations like this that were happening at the hospital. In this book, Dr. Harbin shares the story of how an esteemed eye surgeon, who worked at one of the nation’s premier university medical centers, became the cause of a range of medical problems for his patients – and how the university’s leaders and official committee members continued to support the doctor and conceal this scandal. With the use of court documents, transcripts of tape-recorded conversations, interviews, and personal observation, Dr. Harbin presents this case from the very beginning, uncovering all levels of wrongdoing and secrecy in this candid exploration about the dark side of medicine.
