Dr. William Hurwitz was a preeminent pain specialist infamous for prescribing excessive amounts of pain medication to patients—tens of thousands of pills a year in some cases. Hurwitz was later sentenced to 25 years in prison for drug trafficking, but were his actions actually immoral? Dr. Feelgood tracks the controversial career of Hurwitz and provides a window into the ethical conflict of opioid prescriptions.
