Podcast with Physician and CS Patient Dan Hurley on Getting your Care Authorized by Insurance
Podcast: From Physician to Patient
Dan Hurley, M.D.
Dan Hurley, M.D. is an otolaryngologist (Ear, Nose, Throat) residing in Arizona. He was diagnosed with dediffereniated chondrosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. While he was preparing to receive chemotherapy, his insurance carrier denied a PET scan. When the decision was eventually overruled, Dr. Hurley had to make the choice to delay chemo treatment and get the scan or start treatment to try to save his life. Mathew Handley discussed that decision with him, how he has helped his patients in similar situations and what sparked his initial interest in medicine.
