Great White Doctor is an extraordinarily realistic account of celebrity doctors and their aberrant social lives. The extremely well-researched book is a fascinating peek into the strange world of upper echelon medical practice. Bradley Lewis worked in a New York City hospital for six years and writes from an insider’s perspective. Great White Doctor is a novel grounded in reality. It is a work of fiction missing from the literature of our modern era. The darkly realistic detail and medical panorama make Great White Doctor a powerful and compulsively readable novel. The book speaks to the heart of what is wrong with our health care system and the national broken paradigm by which it is administered. Anyone interested in his health care should read this book, especially women.

Book Description:

"Brad Lewis uses a fictional format to examine the sordid lives of esteemed physicians...Fascinating and compelling."--The Midwest Book Review

About the Author:

Brad Lewis is a writer whose focus has ranged from the bizarre world of celebrity doctors to detailed histories of Jewish-American development, with particular interest to the entertainment industry. He co-wrote the bestselling biography of Milton Berle, My Father, Uncle Miltie, with the fabled comedian's son, a candid look at the irreplaceable American television icon. His Hollywood's Celebrity Gangster, The Incredible Life and Times of Mickey Cohen is the only biography of the charismatic and dangerous mobster whose life was a paradigm for the intermingling of Washington, Las Vegas, the entertainment business and the mob. Lewis' novel Great White Doctor is a scalpel thriller centered on the sordid lives and weird sexual habits of "celebrity doctors", exposing the seamy side of high profile specialists who perform unnecessary surgery on their female patients. Lewis has written often about the Hollywood scene, and is no stranger to celebrities and celebrity doctors. Anonymous underworld "businessmen," often sent their lady friends for treatment in his offices. That experience with known mobsters contributed to Lewis' interest in how gangsters, Hollywood, and Washington somehow connect in the American landscape. As an actor, Lewis appeared on television in As the World Turns, Love of Life, The Guiding Light, and trained at the prestigious H. B. Studios in Manhattan, with its founder Herbert Berghof and fabled acting teacher William Hickey. He appeared in many off and off-off Broadway productions. Lewis has advanced degrees from CUNY (Psychology) and New York University; a fellowship at Columbia University, College of Physicians and Surgeons, and St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital. He is retired from clinical practice and is known around the world as the first health professional to fight for the elimination of formaldehyde from pediatric medicaments. His research articles and letters have been published and quoted in hundreds of professional journals as early as 1981 and as recent as 2009. A popular talk show guest, he has appeared on numerous radio and television programs. Lewis is a native New Yorker.
