We spend a trillion dollars a year on high-tech tests, and yet almost 20% of patients are misdiagnosed.  Making Rounds reintroduces the oldest diagnostic method listening to the patient by following leading cardiologists Valentin Fuster, MD, PhD, Director of Mount Sinai Heart and Herschel Sklaroff, MD, Clinical Professor of Medicine, Cardiology at Mount Sinai Heart over a one-month period as they care for critically-ill heart patients in the Cardiac Care Unit at The Mount Sinai Hospital.  We accompany Fuster and Sklaroff as they teach future doctors the traditional art and science of a thorough bedside physical exam. “A great many diseases may be diagnosed,” they tell us, “just by looking at a patient’s hand.”

Making Rounds presents Fuster’s and Sklaroff’s decades of experience in action as they correct misdiagnoses and save lives, demonstrating in real-world situations that simply observing and listening to patients remain medicine’s most indispensable tools.
