We talk with Dr. Rita Redberg (professor of medicine & cardiologist at UCSF) about how very often less is more when it comes to medical care. We cover cancer screening (PSA, mammograms, blood testing, colonoscopy, CT screening for lung cancer), the utility or lack thereof of genetic testing, medical devices, statins, hypertension guidelines and treatment, and much more!
