About Dr. Feelgood

We trust Doctors with our lives – to heal us when we’re sick and guide us on a path towards healthy living.  But what happens when the person you’ve entrusted with your well being is doing more harm than good?  Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, Anna Nicole Smith and many more lived whirlwind lives in public eye – adored by millions.  For those around them, it was easy to get sucked into the non-stop celebrity lifestyle – and sometimes that even included their doctors.

Dr. Feelgood tells the shocking true stories of the symbiotic relationships between celebrities and their doctors whose drug prescriptions or procedures led to controversy, mystery, and ultimately tragedy for their notable clients.  Can a doctor remain objective when immersed in the world of their celebrity clients?  And where does the responsibility lie: with the user, or the doctor who put the drugs in there hands?
