David Belk got his Medical degree from the University of Southern California School of Medicine and is board certified in Internal Medicine. He currently has a solo practice in Northern California. Over the last five years, he has devoted most of his free time to untangling and demystifying health care costs in this country. He has discovered through his research that the cost of most health care products in the US are both hidden and very deceptive, and that these deceptions are often used to take advantage of consumers. The results of much of his research can be found on his website The True Cost of Healthcare and also in the blogs he has written for Huffington Post.
