COMING UP THIS MORNING ON TODAY.

A JAW-DROPPING ROSSEN REPORTS INVESTIGATION.

LISTEN TO THIS.

"Hi good morning and coming up this morning on TODAY an all new Rossen Reports investigation. Is your doctor stoned? I know it sounds odd - you wouldn't expect it, but it happens more often than you think. In fact, some studies show 1 in 10 doctors may be addicted to drugs or alcohol. We're in Dallas, Texas right now at the home of one doctor, a neurosurgeon who is well known around here, who's accused of killing two patients, injuring more than a dozen others. Was he drunk or high when he was performing surgery? We have it all coming up for you this morning on TODAY."

SOME DOCTORS HAVE EVEN BEEN ACCUSED OF *OPERATING* ON PATIENTS WHILE HIGH.

BEFORE YOU HEAD TO THE DOCTOR'S OFFICE. CHECK OUT A NEW ROSSEN REPORTS THIS MORNING ON TODAY. Return to index of stories...
