Robert Yoho spent three decades as a cosmetic surgeon after a career as an emergency physician. This generalist training gives him perspective and allows him to avoid favoring any medical specialty.

He has had little dealings with hospitals, big Pharma, or insurance companies before he wrote this book. No one has ever considered him a “whale” prescriber or device implanter. He retired from medical practice in 2019.
