Synopsis: In today’s world, there are many hot-button topics that generate equal parts debate and confusion. At the top of that list is healthcare. For most Americans, finding out “the truth” about current problems or possible fixes is virtually impossible amidst all the emotionally charged rhetoric. Dr. Tim Johnson has been reporting on health matters for ABC since the mid-seventies, but in recent years he has spent an increasing amount of time studying our system of healthcare—or lack thereof. Many Americans fall between the cracks and do not receive any care—or receive care that is either inferior or too costly or both. Over the years, he has learned some important lessons, and in The Truth About Getting Sick in America, he shares those lessons and looks to the future of American healthcare.

About the Author: In 1975, Dr. Timothy Johnson M.D. joined ABC News as the medical reporter and later became the "Medical Editor" of Good Morning America when the program premiered. In over three decades at ABC News, he has reported for World News Tonight, Nightline, and 20/20. He is now the ABC News Senior Medical Contributor. Dr. Johnson is the founding editor of the Harvard Medical School Health Letter and co-editor of the Harvard Medical School Health Letter Book. He is also co-editor of the book Your Good Health, co-author of Let's Talk and author of Dr. Timothy Johnson's On-Call Guide to Men's Heath and Finding God in the Questions: A Personal Journey. Dr. Johnson is married with two children and three grandchildren.
