Overview

A Grateful Man is a screenplay about a driven otolaryngologist-head and neck surgeon who experienced loss of his parents as a youth growing up in the Bronx. This led him in part, to focus on academics rather than emotion as he began a successful career. However, in adulthood, following the sudden death of his older brother and fighting his own heart disease, he changed his life to better grow as a person and more holistically serve his patients dealing with stress management, mid facial pain and TMJ problems... As a result, he lost his wife, his reputation and his livelihood while fighting false accusations of sexual misconduct. This screenplay takes the reader behind the scenes of this high powered surgeon's difficult professional and personal life to understand the stresses and pressures that can make some men break. While he never broke, he cracked. But he sought answers and, Phoenix-like, rose from the ashes of what could have been his early demise, to help others lead better lives. In the process he became a better person, puts the demons of his childhood to rest so that he could get on with his life, and eventually got the personal happiness that eluded him for so many years. This screenplay is the first one that deals with these issues since the movie The Doctor. In my screenplay, I am an ENT Surgeon with a severe cardiac problem and in the movie The Doctor staring William Hurt, he is a cardiologist with a severe ENT problem. In many ways I believe that my story is even more powerful by dealing with very important medical and legal issues along with false accusations of sexual misconduct.

Author Information

I am Gil Levitt, MD on whose life this screenplay is based. I am proud of a long career as an innovative otolaryngologist-head and neck surgeon (ENT surgeon) with several publications in the medical literature and a former guest speaker at two national meetings of The American Holistic Medical Association. Now, approaching 80, I decided to write my autobiography for my family as a gift to them. In it, I share my journey, my challenges, my beliefs, and my philosophy based on my personal life experiences and what I have learned and what is in my heart. I believe it is a hero's journey overcoming many great challenges to finally become the person that I want to be - a loving husband, a proud father and grandfather, and a retired successful physician and surgeon with a holistic approach to life connecting mind, body, and spirit. I believe that this is a story with some universal themes that I want to share at this time in my life with the public in both of my autobiographical novels and with this screenplay.
