I listen to a lot of podcasts and one of my favorites has always been Dr Death from wondering when it came out in twenty eighteen, it shocked listeners by shining a light on the story of Dr. Dunwich and the system failure that allowed him to maim and kill 33 patients now in 2020.
Host Laura Beal is back with a new season of Doctor Death that explores the incredible, true story of a doctor who sacrificed his patient's health for personal profit. A doctor who had over 500 victims before being stopped by the FBI, a doctor who deserves the name given to him by his victims.
Dr. Death Season two digs into the story of Dr. Farid FATA, who for years diagnosed thousands of patients with cancer and is one of the most well-respected oncologists in Michigan. They believed him. They believed him when he told them they needed chemotherapy and they believed he could save their lives. But he was lying about everything. I'm about to play you a brief clip from the show, but while you're listening, make sure to subscribe to Dr. Death Season two on Apple podcast one Dary, feel the story on.
Imagine you're not feeling well and it won't go away, a little fatigue, some achiness, a loved one tells you, go see a doctor. So, OK, you go to your doctor and you get some bloodwork done. When the results come back, there are a few questions your doctor recommends. You go see a specialist. My internal medicine doctor said, you know, hey, I sent my mom to him is world renowned Sloan Kettering graduate, a specialist who cares who's attentive.
You know, he had these very soulful eyes located in a state of the art inviting office.
It was a beautiful building, a beautiful office that had this lovely healing garden attached to it.
The doctor takes one look at your lab work. He makes a face and then he says three of the most horrifying words a patient can hear. You have cancer, you're devastated, but you're also grateful because you believe you caught it early and you're being treated by the best.
I would say that is education and experience in Michigan is unparalleled. Second to none.
Dr. Fareed FATA is a leading authority in the treatment of cancer in the U.S. close attention cutting edge treatments.
But care has been phenomenal. The staff is warm and friendly and care and the caring has just been amazing, all thanks to Dr. Farid FATA that your father has just got. So there should be a hundred and fifty thousand that Dr..
But fortunately it will turn out there's only one, because after months of appointments, hours spent in chemo chair's poison pumping through your veins, accepting that you might not survive, you learn something that you can barely comprehend. You don't have cancer. You never did. And you're not the only one. From wondering, I'm Laura Beal and this is season two of Dr. Dan.
