Thriller

The inspiration for Fox TV’s drama series, “Mob Doctor,” 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 “Il Dottore,” 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 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.
