In this episode, we are going to talk about one of the biggest medical malpractice verdicts in the U.S with Carol Stern and author David Black of Ripped Apart: Living Misdiagnosed, Gary and Carol Stern’s Epic Fight Against Malpractice in the American Health Care System.
Meet Carol Stern:
Carol Stern is the wife of Gary Stern, the subject of Ripped Apart: Living Misdiagnosed, a true story of one of the largest medical malpractice awards in U.S. history. This real-life account of how a husband and wife’s love was tested during the darkest of times. It pulls back the curtain in detail what it is like to suffer due to doctors’ mistakes and their refusal to admit they made them. Carol recounts in honest detail how her husband Gary spent three years with his internal organs on the outside of his body. More importantly, Carol reveals how she stopped at nothing to make sure Gary was under the best possible care at all times, even if that meant taking things into her own hands.
