Many thanks to Steve Moffic, MD, writer and award-winning academic psychiatrist, for joining me on The Art of Medicine with Dr. Andrew Wilner. Dr. Moffic was introduced to me by Ronald Pies, MD, another psychiatrist and writer whom I interviewed in Episode #63. Dr. Pies recruited Dr. Moffic as a blogger for Psychiatric Times. Dr. Moffic has written on diverse topics including climate change, gaslighting and anti-semitism. He also creates weekly videos about “Psychiatry and Society.”
Dr. Moffic was a pioneer in applying managed care to people with mental health disorders. He led a program that tried to balance quality of care and financial constraints. Based on his experience, Dr. Moffic wrote a book on the ethical challenges of managed healthcare, “The Ethical Way: Challenges and Solutions for Managed Behavioral Healthcare.”
The controversy surrounding his approach led the President of the American Psychiatric Association to publicly pronounce Dr. Moffic “evil.”
On a more auspicious occasion, Dr. Moffic received the “Hero of Public Psychiatry” award from the American Psychiatric Association.
Please join us for a fascinating 30-minute discussion.
