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: a well respected surgeon and socialite by day, and "Il Dottore", a gambler and sex addict, by night. Eventually, he had to make a choice between loyalty to the mob or remaining true to his Hippocratic Oath, all under the watchful eye of New York?s top federal prosecutor, Rudolph Giuliani. Who is "Il Dottore"? Every man, some day, has to make a choice.
