The practice of cardiology has taken a beating over the past years. Tough financial times and intense coverage of inappropriate procedures have tipped a balance: the reverence with which cardiologists (and physicians at large) were once held seems to have been replaced by an atmosphere of suspicion and blame. It's unsurprising, then, that recent surveys of happiness among cardiologists detect a trend toward gloominess and professional dissatisfaction. Are we doomed? Private practitioner and theheart.org blogger Dr Seth Bilazarian joins the show to discuss the pros and cons of cardiology in 2012 and express what continues to make his practice enjoyable and fulfilling (despite it all).
