Even Doctors Cry tells a riveting story of love, death, scandal and a terribly flawed medical system.
From the Publisher:
Even Doctors Cry tells the story of Dr. Alvin Reiter, a successful Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, his love for his profession and his pride in his work. ?I always felt like Clark Kent putting on my surgical outfit,? Reiter wrote about his transformative role. Then came a time when even Superman could not help. In 1994, Alvin was diagnosed with incurable Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma and given less than a 40% chance of living 6 years, while his wife Karen was diagnosed with early breast cancer in 1999 and given a 95% chance of total cure. The doctor survived, but Karen did not. She died of metastatic breast cancer in May 2003. Her premature death was aided and abetted by her oncologist, breast and liver surgeons and the gross failure of the medical system in which human error, negligence and hubris can, and did, take a life. In the midst of Karen's struggle for her life, Reiter became the target of an unwarranted investigation into billing fraud. Unfortunately, his paradise was a fool's paradise.
