Dr. Rick Redalen, the Maverick Doctor, is traveling the country during the final days of the 2016 election cycle to raise awareness about the healthcare crisis in the United States. He’s on a mission to address the mess!

“According to the World Health Organization, the Unites States ranks 37th in the world in healthcare. According to the 2015 edition of America’s Health Rankings, Arizona is ranked 30th in the nation. In Arizona rates are up more than 50 percent overall for 2017 and Cigna is the only insurer in Maricopa County. Despite the rising cost and declining state of our healthcare system, there has been little talk from the candidates about the issue. The national news media has been focused on politics, while ignoring the real issues impacting American families.” Dr. Redalen stated.

Frustrated by the lack of attention on healthcare cost and quality, Dr. Redalen is going on the road. The Maverick Doctor will be taking his 42 foot custom wrapped recreation vehicle to events across the nation in an attempt to raise awareness about the critical condition of healthcare in the United States.

“Until Election Day we will be traveling the country, talking to the American people, elected officials and candidates alike. I am determined to make healthcare a key issue in this election.” Redalen continued, “For too long, our leadership has neglected to properly address the looming healthcare crisis. Every citizen should be concerned about the quality, affordability and accessibility of healthcare. By the time you or your loved one is in need of medical attention, it could be too late.”  The Maverick Doctor can be reached at 928-719-7582 while on the road.
