What happens when you drop an agnostic Jewish surgeon in a century-old Catholic hospital, where the doctor meets dogma and falls for the CEO? A nun for God’s sake.
Dr. Martin Fischer, a white-coated Quixote, tilts his scalpel at the dark underbelly of U.S. healthcare and fights for his patients. His only weapons are surgical skill and a pesky sense of righteous indignation that’s driving everyone nuts — including Marty.
As he takes on a multi-billion-dollar medical company, a mercenary surgical group, and the thoroughly corrupt CFO of the hospital, it’s either stress or God who intervenes. Did Jesus just wink at him from the cross?
Turker, a former comic, and surgeon, takes us on the quirky hero’s journey through the monetized halls of U.S. medicine while navigating the conflicted interfaith minefield of modern American Jewry. The Wandering Jew of St. Salacious delivers a humorous blow for us, the underdog patients, and fans a spark of hope for a healthier future.
