Dr. David Agus


We are living in a time of extraordinary changes in the health-care industry, and the next 5 or 10 years will forever change the way we approach health care.

That’s the belief of David Agus, M.D., one of the world’s leading physicians and a pioneer of biomedical research. He’s also a best-selling author, a contributor at CBS News and is known as the doctor to the stars.

In his latest book, The Lucky Years: How to Thrive in the Brave New World of Health, Dr. Agus, explains how rapidly research and treatments are changing and how this new era of innovation is a huge benefit for patients.

Dr. Agus says he knows this can be a confusing time for patients who are constantly bombarded with information, a lot of it untrue, but it’s also a time to be excited about. He offers tips for weeding through the “miracle” cure stories found online and for becoming your own best advocate.

Plus, he also dispels some conspiracies and myths, particularly those related to cancer care. He weighs on whether you can get better care abroad and the persistent rumor that the government and big pharma have teamed up to keep a cure for cancer secret.

It’s a thought-provoking, no-nonsense conversation that will make you more optimistic than ever about the path ahead should you or a loved one be diagnosed with a serious disease. Get his practical tips for making the most of these “lucky years.”
