One of America’s top doctors rips the Band-Aid off to expose the American health care system
Legislation written by drug and insurance companies, malpractice by corrupt and incompetent doctors, misguided and dishonest medical policy—the reality may be worse than you feared, and Medical Politics exposes all the secrets of a dirty American health care industry.
Written by Stephen Soloway, one of America’s top rheumatologists and a former appointee to Donald Trump’s President's Council on Sports, Fitness, and Nutrition, this expose provides an inside look at how medical decisions are lobbied and money influences policy at the highest levels, explains how recent and upcoming medical policies will affect common Americans, and gives recommendations for a better American medical system.
Featuring the author's personal letters to dirty insurance companies and other figures in the industry, Medical Politics takes readers inside Dr. Soloway's fight against Big Pharma and Big Insurance in search of better care for his patients. The result is shocking indictment of the American medical system from an insider--and charts a path for Americans to better advocate for themselves.
Dr. Soloway has dedicated his life to helping patients and colleagues for decades. He's had patients visit him from fifty countries and nearly one hundred US cities. Dr. Soloway’s devotion to patients’ needs has earned him perennial Top Doc awards for nearly two decades, and he is regarded as one of the leaders in the Philadelphia, New Jersey, and Delaware area for Rheumatologic care. His credentials are as follows:
- Chairman Department of Rheumatology Division of Internal Medicine Inspira Health Network

Dr. Soloway is involved in arthritis and osteoporosis treatment and has a passion for injecting joints and treating gout. Currently, he has nine patents approved or pending—in the US and abroad—related to needles and injection techniques that he has perfected over his career.

He lives in Cumberland County, New Jersey.
“Dr. Soloway's book is an important and compelling read. Fighting hard in the trenches for his patients shows a great deal of strength, knowledge, and compassion. He lays out a game plan for a Superbowl-sized medical win for patients…and freedom. The book is jam packed with information, but also very enjoyable to read.” —Pete Hegseth, #1 New York Times bestselling author, cohost of Fox & FriendsWeekend, and decorated US Army veteran
“Dr. Soloway's broad perspective on such sensitive topics and the ease of reading his perspectives are such a breath of fresh air. I recommend anybody to read this book, including upper levels of the government, as he is spot on in his theories and thoughts.”—Mike Huckabee, bestselling author, Fox News contributor, former governor of Arkansas and presidential candidate, and host of “Huckabee”
"In these days when there is absolutely no trust in this world, it is good to know a medical professional who is beyond reproach. I am proud of Dr. Soloway and am proud of his constant quest for excellence."—Congressman Jefferson Van Drew, 2nd Congressional District, NJ
"I am honored and privileged to know Dr. Soloway. His book, Bad Medicine was eye-opening and enlightening. His book, Medical Politics is even more so. Dr. Soloway was a student of the father of rheumatology, Dr. Ralph Schumacher, Jr. The hands-on medical knowledge of Dr. Soloway is astounding and superior. It is pure genius. His insights into the art of medicine as well as the culture of medical practice is a must read for all. I personally could not put this book down. It was entertaining and, at the same time, elucidating. Dr. Soloway has produced an essential manual for every physician and every person who has ever been a patient. Medical Politics should also be read by anyone who aspires to public office. This is a book of sheer discovery and heroism."—Joseph Frager, M.D.
