One article on PainSci cites Makary 2016: Medical Errors in Perspective

PainSci notes on Makary 2016:

This “analysis” (editorial) has serious flaws, but the sensationalistic headline in a major journal did incalculable preventable harm to the credibility and perception of scientific medicine. Medicine unquestionably has dangers and makes mistakes, but the claim that it is almost as deadly as heart disease and cancer is ridiculous. For detailed analysis, see Gorski and Jarry. For related commentary, see Medical Errors in Perspective.
