The Mob Doctor is the riveting true story of a Jewish kid from the Bronx who became a Mafia insider and physician to top NY Mafia Dons such as John Gotti, Carlo Gambino, Paul Castellano, and Joe Bonanno. As a result, the doctor led a double life: a well-respected surgeon and socialite by day, and “Il Dottore,” a gambler and sex addict, by night. Welcomed into an exciting and glamorous underworld which included discos, drugs, high-stakes gambling and beautiful women, he somehow managed to pursue his true profession seriously and in time, became one of the nation’s leading cardiac surgeons. Eventually, he had to make a choice between loyalty to the mob and killing a government witness on the operating table or remaining true to his Hippocratic Oath, all under the watchful eye of New York’s top federal prosecutor, Rudolph Giuliani.
Who is the real MOB DOCTOR? Every man, someday, has to make a choice!
