    • Ben Casey and Dr. Kildare

      Relating an anecdote about two doctors, Fiscus perserves their anonymity by replacing their real names with those of two contemporary fictional television doctors. Ben Casey (1961-1966) related the dramatic and controversial exploits of the eponymous young brain surgeon played by Vince Edwards. Dr. Kildare (1961-1966) featured the education and experiences of young internist James Kildare played by Richard Chamberlain.
