A doctor caught trading prescriptions for cash leaves a trail of bodies behind.

A respected anesthesiologist ran a pain-management clinic on the weekends out of a basement in Flushing Queens, New York.

Each Saturday, Dr. Stan Li saw more than seventy patients a day, writing prescriptions for Oxycontin, Xanax, and other opioids.

Today's episode features Charlotte Bismuth, author of Bad Medicine.
