Were there other doctors involved that could potentially ruin all the monitoring of Dr. Nick? Did the media set out to enter into a witch hunt to destroy the good reputation of Dr. Nick? Even though the proof was established that Dr. Nick was innocent of all charges, he ultimately had his medical license revoked. What would Elvis say if he could talk today about this miscarriage of justice?
The demands of Elvis's career took a serious toll on his health. In my opinion, Dr, Nick was his friend and his doctor who only had his best interests in mind until the end. The media can be ruthless especially when celebrities are involved. They set out to destroy the reputation of an accomplished and dedicated doctor, who was the founder of dialysis and kidney transplants. He also helped AIDS patients.
Read this book to decide for yourself what Elvis would say today about his relationship with Dr. Nick, a doctor who sacrificed his own career for Elvis' s sake.
Dr. George Nichopoulos (a.k.a. Dr. Nick to all his beloved patients) ended up being thrown to the wolves after Elvis death and this book is the heartbreaking story about the whole unhappy mess of what happened to the doctor who tried to save one of the Kings of Rock 'n' Roll from himself, the leeches attached to Elvis, and the unscrupulous doctors who allowed fame to override their Hippocratic oath and their common sense.
Sadly, this is a must read for every Elvis fan.
Tragically, it will make you realize how very close the whole situation was to the world still having Elvis here amongst us.
I couldn't put it down. I have sent this book to two other Elvis fans and they also could not put it down.
Highly recommend this book.
p.s. Dr. Nick's family also suffered when Elvis passed away. Everyone in the Nichopoulos family was close to Elvis. They could not properly grieve for Elvis and move on to happy memories of their time with him because of what was done to Dr. Nick.
I also must mention that another King of Rock 'n' Roll plays a big part in Dr. Nick's life after the passing of Elvis. Mr. Jerry Lee Lewis gives a resoundingly positive review of this book that can be seen on the book's jacket and inside. Read the book all the way through to see why this other Rock Legend loves Dr. Nick so much.
