When hit podcast Dr. Death came out in 2018, it shocked listeners by shining a light on the story of Dr Christopher Duntch, and the shocking system failures that allowed him to maim and kill thirty three patients in Texas.
Now, in 2020, Journalist and Host Laura Beil is back with a new story about another Doctor. A Doctor who poisoned his patients with drugs they didn’t need, to treat diseases they didn’t have.
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.
If someone you love is diagnosed with cancer, you want them to get the best treatment from the best doctors. In 2013, patients in Michigan thought Farid Fata was that doctor. Between his prestigious education, years of experience and pleasant bedside manner, Fata was everything you could want in a doctor. And as one of the most well respected oncologists in Michigan, his patients believed him. They believed him when he told them they needed chemotherapy. And they believed he would save their lives.
But he was not who he appeared to be. He was lying.
From Wondery, this is the story of hundreds of patients in Michigan, a doctor, and a poisonous secret. Laura Beil returns with a second season of the award-winning series “Dr Death.”
