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 two leading cardiologists from Mount Sinai Hospital, Dr. Valentin Fuster and Dr. Herschel Sklaroff, over a one-month period as they care for critically-ill heart patients in the Cardiac Care Unit at 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."

Filmmaker Muffie Meyer (who co-directed Grey Gardens and The New Medicine) shows 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.
