Dr. Death Reviews
I have a brother who is a doctor, my mother was DON, my sister was a nurse and I worked for J & J. Oh, and I live in Dallas. Wow. Well done. I will recommend this podcast. Thank you.
This was far and beyond one of the best crime podcasts I’ve ever experienced. I have rarely been so moved, so riveted through this form of media. Wonderful story telling on a truly grim subject, highly recommended.
Great Listen. Laura does an excellent researching job and keeps you interested throughout the episodes.
Terrifying and informative. Thank you, Ms. Beale, for your excellent investigative reporting.
This was totally awesome, scary and informative. The speaking, music everything well put together. Thanks so much!!
Wow this story was incredible. A friend recommended the pod cast and I like other assumed trusting your doctor and your surgeon was a safe thing to do. I will always do my homework going forward! Just cause they talk the talk, don’t mean they can walk the walk !
I was hooked right away. Crazy from start to finish. My heart aches for the patients and families that put their trust in this person. I won’t be able to look at a doctor or hospital the same after this.
This is a great story; however, I think there need to be some edits. First, there is lack of clarity in terms of the “doctor’s” schooling. You use medical school, residency and fellowship interchangeably when they are all quite different. Secondly, when you are talking about tort reform in medmal, it is inplied that this is solely to benefit insurance companies and physicians. However, this analysis lacks depth and clarity. The fact that trial lawyers will not take cases implies greed on their part;wherein, they won’t take cases where the trial lawyer gets a big payout. Indeed, medmal needs reform, but the poor ethics and greed of medmal lawyers is a loose end in your story.
Just finished listening to all the episodes and am appalled and terrified. It is unbelievable that the healthcare system has failed SO many people by letting this man continue to operate. You all did a fantastic job compiling the information for the episodes. Can’t wait to listen to another of your series!
Great, addicting, enthralling story. This is researched, edited, and spoken so well. I binged this whole series during a single shift at work and I can’t wait to hear more from Laura.
What can I say? On episode 2 and can’t stop listening. Amazing.
My Favorite Murder had mentioned this show so I thought I would check it out. Having enjoyed previous Wondery podcasts I expected good listening. Right off the bad this not only enveloped me but also made me so scared and sad. This is every medical fear I have and yet I couldn’t stop listening. This is such a well done podcast. Highly recommend the listen.
Great storytelling and fascinating story.
Engaging and well told.
Chuck Norris walked into a tattoo parlour, with a 0.50 cal machine gun. After telling the artist what he wanted, he declined the needle and pointed at the machine gun.
Very solid true crime podcast. Factual, well presented, and - and this is where I feel many crime podcasts go wrong - does not drag it out. Unbelievable story.
Well presented & detailed. Shows the worst & best side of doctors. Shame on the hospitals & the system that is meant to be protecting the American people.
Good story but the ads were unbearable. 20 minutes show, 20minutes ads....
Seriously? It's 2018 dudes, not 1956. Do not skull **** with your seriously lame advertising. If you want to have it in there, do it tastefully. Put them all at the end and treat us with some respect. I will make sure I never engage with any of the companies mentioned.
This podcast reminds me of my own career path, I too wanted to be a neurosurgeon but the fork in my road took me to an abattoir.
This is on par with top podcast titles such as Serial, Criminal and Radiolab. Looking forward to season 2.

Amazing podcast, I hadn’t heard of this and it’s like listening to horror movie at times. Laura delivers this brilliantly. Can’t stop listening. GB
I have quickly become a fan of a lot of wondery podcasts - all well researched and produced to an exceptional standard Researcher Laura does a great job with this story and I listened to 5 epsisodes back to back without any lack of interest creeping in Better than some of the best audiobooks I have enjoyed to help a long journey pass Thanks GB
My first ever Podcast and what a corker! Loved it from start to finish. Had me on the edge of my seat and evoked many emotions in me ( I must of pulled some strange faces whilst listening!) Also a great insight to the American health care system as a British person. GB
When we see men of worth, we should think of equaling them; when we see men of a contrary character, we should turn inwards and examine ourselves.
Dr. Death Wiki
Doctor is an academic title that originates from the Latin word of the same spelling and meaning. The word is originally an agentive noun of the Latin verb docēre [dɔˈkeːrɛ] 'to teach'. It has been used as an academic title in Europe since the 13th century, when the first Doctorates were awarded at the University of Bologna and the University of Paris. Having become established in European universities, this usage spread around the world. Contracted "Dr" or "Dr.", it is used as a designation for a person who has obtained a Doctorate (e.g. PhD). In many parts of the world it is also used by medical practitioners, regardless of whether or not they hold a doctoral-level degree. .
