How doctors select their...doctors!

In a recent Forbes interview with The Leapfrog Group CEO Leah Binder, Marty Makary, MD explains how he selected a doctor for his father's surgery—and offers tips for patients making similar choices for themselves and their families.  According to the Forbes site, Makary says patients should investigate a hospital using CMS's Hospital Compare site, Leapfrog's Hospital Safety Score, the Society of Thoracic Surgeons reports, online reviews, patient satisfaction survey results, and the surgeon's credentials.
