White Coat, Black Art is an original and provocative show demystifying the world of medicine. Host Dr. Brian Goldman reveals the culture of medicine and the health-care system from the point of view of those who work on the other side of the gurney. Doctors, nurses and other health-care providers explain how things really work and why, with a refreshing and unprecedented level of honesty.
