The Doctor Broad: A Mafia Love Story
Dr. Barbara Roberts, author of The Doctor Broad, was a devout Catholic schoolgirl who grew up to be a physician, an atheist, feminist, anti-war activist – as well as a Mob doctor and Mob mistress. The man she kept alive and out of prison was Raymond L. S. Patriarca, the long-time head of the New England Mafia. A highly respected cardiologist, Dr. Roberts founded and directed the Women’s Cardiac Center at the Miriam Hospital in Providence from 2002 to 2016. She is the recipient of many awards, has written numerous books, and was named a Top Doctor for Women three times by RI Monthly. Books will be available for sale and signing.
