Editorial Reviews

Midwest Book Review - James Cox, Editor
In Great White Doctor, oral surgeon and novelist Brad Lewis uses a fictional format to examine the sordid lives of esteemed physicians in a high-profile New York based OB-GYN practice. The parade of characters includes chauvinists, egomanics, and greedy doctors performing ethically and medically suspect operations to increase their cash flow. Lewis' depiction of "celebrity doctors" and their celebrity clientele is interwoven with infidelity, sexual deviancy, racism, and murder.
KABC Syndicated Radio - Mike Gallagher
I'm so glad to hear about Brad Lewis' book. He tells the truth and it's an amazing story
bookviews.com - Alan Caruba
A medical thriller that chronicles the road to Hell of a renowned OB-GYN whose sexual habits are bizarre. Readers will no doubt find it fascinating, if not terrifying
WPBR, Talk Radio of the Palm Beaches - Grant Stone
Brad Lewis was a great guest to have on the show...I highly recommend Brad and his book to all entertainers out there

Meet 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. 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. Great White Doctor is a scalpel thriller centered on the sordid lives and sexual habits of "celebrity doctors". The Bloomingdale Code is a well-researched page-turner about secret religious tenets, ancient medical ritual, conspiracies, and modern-day international politics. 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 TV 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 NYU, a fellowship at Columbia University, College of Physicians and Surgeons, and St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital.Retired from clinical practice, he has fought for the elimination of formaldehyde from pediatric medicaments. His research has been quoted in hundreds of professional journals. A popular talk show guest, he has appeared on numerous radio and television programs. Lewis is a native New Yorker.
