The inspiration for Fox TVâ€™s drama series, â€śMob Doctor,â€ť Il
Dottore 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: well respected surgeon and socialite by day,
and â€śIl Dottore,â€ť gambler and sex addict, by night. Welcomed
into an exciting and glamorous underworld which included
discos, drugs, high-stake gambling and beautiful women, he
somehow managed to pursue his true profession seriously and
in time, became one of the nationâ€™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.
