Leading robotic prostate surgeon, Dr. David Samadi, responds to recent article that some doctors may be keeping secrets from patients. He addresses each topic as follows:

1. Over-testing and over-prescribing - Medicine is highly complex and, as such, doctors may order many tests or provide prescriptions - Dr. Samadi encourages patients to seek 2nd and 3rd opinions

2. Antibiotic overuse - this is an issue and may lead to antibiotic resistance. Many illnesses are viral and will resolve on their own in a week or so.

3. CPR has limited effectiveness - Dr. Samadi believes this is still a vital rescue tool

4. Stress tests provide limited information - Dr. Samadi suggests that they may be overused and may be unnecessary for patients without symptoms to warrant stress testing
