About the podcast

Search for Dr. Death: Miracle Man to hear the latest season of Dr. Death. A story of trust, betrayal and miracles.We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system.Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away.But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect?From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.

Dr. Death Is a Deserving Phenomenon Two weeks after the finish of its official season, Dr. Death looks like a phenomenon. What has made it such an immediate success is not only the shock of its content but also its local focus. Beil is based in Texas and has been reporting on Duntsch for years. The world-building in Dr. Death comes naturally, forgoing portraits of Dallas the town or its residents. The show is smart enough to launch into the straight reporting, letting the terrible drama of the case take priority over style.

Listened to Dr. Death on my drive down to Miami this fall... I thought I was an interesting yet dark podcast about the loopholes found throughout the health care system. It is a messed up story but important to be talked about for sure. Overall not GREAT but still very interesting.

Bit confused as to why this is one of the top most listened to podcasts of all time. It’s quite good, and kinda terrifying a surgeon could get away with this. But feels like a 1 hour story stretched out into 7 hours.

Et spændende men samtidig skræmmende true crime-podcast. Dr. Christopher Duntsch var neurokirurg og påstod at han var den bedste indenfor sit felt, og det betød at flere patienter besøgte ham når de havde problemer, det endte dog virkelig tragisk for flere af patienterne.

Virkelig en sindssyg historie. Man tror næsten ikke på, at det hele har kunnet lade sig gøre.
