Dr. Kroes with Bobby Sheehan (director) and Jeff Hays (producer)
According to Rotten Tomatoes, "Doctored" is director Bobby Sheehan and producer Jeff Hays' entry into the emerging genre of health focused feature documentaries and follows both patients and health care providers struggling within a broken health care system. The story begins with the AMA's attack on their non-drug providing rivals, the chiropractic profession. Interviews and historical footage expose the AMA's clandestine campaign to eliminate chiropractic services, which culminates in a 15 year legal battle known as the Wilk case. The key point made early in the film is that as it relates to health care almost all areas have been "doctored". Endemic of the problem is the plight of today's MD who is forced to forgo the "art" of medicine in exchange for 12-15 minute appointments and forced prescriptions dispensing. Although the US makes up only 5% of the world's population, we consume over 50% of all the world's pharmaceutical drugs, while we endure worsening health. Sheehan shed's light on this "doctored" system and opens a conversation on real solutions (Rotten Tomatoes by Flixster).
