Irritated but couldn’t wait to complete series...

One of the best podcasts. I wish there was a psychological profile on both the victim and perpetrator truly a match made in hell.

Couldn’t stop listening

Fascinating — how this man knew how to manipulate a patient, or 2 (or how ever many he did), is mind blowing. Excellent podcast. You won’t want to stop listening to it.

Excellent podcast, and a public service.

Thank you for making this public and comtinuing to follow this story. NY State Board of Health needed this exposure and pressure to address the issues. Looking forward to further updates.
