In this episode of the Lions of Liberty Podcast, I am joined by Dr. Keith Smith, co-founder of and practicing surgeon at the Surgery Center of Oklahoma. Dr. Smith explains why he first went into the field of medicine, and details the problems he saw in the industry that led him to form the free market oriented Surgery Center of Oklahoma. Keith and I discuss how the medical industry in the United States is influenced by cronyism, and how this leads to a distorted market and price dishonesty from unaccountable institutions. We then discuss how the Surgery Center of Oklahoma is able to deliver quality service at affordable prices while practicing price honesty by refusing to participate in government programs. Stay tuned for my wrap-up rant, as I have my own thoughts on the root causes of the problems with the medical industry in the United States.
