When Jerry Summers needed surgery, he turned to his best friend. But the two buddies ended up living two very different realities. And after becoming paralyzed as a result of his botched surgery, Jerry is finally ready to open about what he went through, who he blames, and what he wants to say to Chris now. If you haven’t already, listen to the first season now, particularly the episode called “Chris and Jerry.” Tap here to see a picture of Jerry with his dog, Stella. On next week’s final episode of Dr. Death Season 2, we will feature an interview that explores some of the similarities and differences between the cases of Dr. Fata and Dr. Duntsch.Listen early and ad free by joining Wondery+ in the Wondery App. https://wondery.app.link/drdeathSupport us by supporting our sponsors!Simplisafe - Visit Simplisafe.com/DOCTOR for a free security camera, plus a 60 day risk-free trial with any new system order.Zip Recruiter - Try for free at ZipRecruiter.com/DEATH.ThredUp - Get an extra 30% off your first order at thredup.com/doctor.Hello Fresh - Go to HelloFresh.com/DOCTOR80 and use code DOCTOR80 for a total of $80 off across 5 boxes, including free shipping on your first box.

And I agree with the host... I don't think Jerry could have stopped Chris. I understand why he feels regret, but he didn't have all the facts at the time and more importantly he didn't have the authority to intervene. Chris Duntsch had powerful people in the medical field looking the other way and even backing him up. They're the ones who should feel guilty.

Chris Duntsch doesn't deserve a friend like Jerry, but I admire Jerry and his huge heart nonetheless. It takes a lot of strength of character to be able to hold a nuanced opinion in such an extreme situation.

Everyone in healthcare should take a few hours to read about Qui Tam whistleblower lawsuits and how you can collect evidence and protect yourself and your patients. Bedside and billing, fraud is everywhere.

commercials every 5 minutes are really annoying. 3 breaks are appropriate - beginning, middle, and end. I can't listen and work bc I have to constantly stop and skip. Good story though, just bad choice in commercial breaks.
