This Unabridged Edition differs from the regular edition of Medical Grail in that it includes Ben Wiggins' fight against a group of doctors who want to use public funds to purchase a CT scanner for themselves, and then integrates his story into Medical Grail.

Ben, a feisty 80 year-old physician, ignores lawsuits and threats to battle his brazen colleagues before meeting Robert Bascom, a young, idealistic physician hired by the hospital administrator to fight the corruption and incompetence rampant in his facility. On Bascom's first night in town he gets an urgent call from a nurse in the hospital. He races to the emergency room where he sees a physician reading a newspaper at the nurse's station. Two patients are in the otherwise empty ward: one is asleep on a stretcher, the other is as white as the sheet covering him. He asks the nurse at the stretcher, "Did you ask the doctor reading the paper to help with this patient?" "Yes, but he won't treat Mexicans." From that moment forward the plot thickens, and Bascom is horrified to learn that the charlatans and corrupt practitioners in the tiny desert hospital have one common goal: to run him out of town. And, despite Ben's help, they will do anything to achieve that goal. Medical Grail, a fictional story based upon true events, is the tale of a doctor who has traveled with patients who have made the trip, some successfully, others less so, through the maze of modern medicine. It will horrify you.

    Believe it or not about today's medicine Well written and fast moving story. Wish it could have had a happy ending. But since it portrayed life the story had to be real. Medicine today is all about the almighty dollar and that is why we have the problems with hospitals, doctors and insurance and costs out of control. The patient loses every time. When you add to that the cost of pharmaceuticals, we are really in trouble.. The care you receive today is the best you'll ever get no matter the traini Believe it or not about today's medicine Well written and fast moving story. Wish it could have had a happy ending.

It starts out innocently enough- Doc who couldn't save his wife and who had taken to the bottle since her death decides to redeem himself by getting a job in an Arizonan hospital. He's there to clean it up. Patients keep dying in spite of his Herculean efforts, due to the complete incompentence and corruption of most of the rest of the staff, both clinical and administrative. There's patch protection, illegal billing, refusal to treat Mexican Unbelievably bad. This guy really has an axe to grind.

There's patch protection, illegal billing, refusal to treat Mexican patients, and really bad similes ("his anger bubbled like acid on limestone"). Aargh! I just can't take any more of this book!

    A surprisingly entertaining novel about a doctor battling against a corrupt healthcare system in Arizona. Lucky in Britain we have the NHS so it couldn't happen here - could it ?
