" 'Operating Behind Closed Doors' illustrates the failures of Virginia's system for protecting patients from dangerous doctors by focusing on the last decade of the career of a Virginia Beach Surgeon, Dr. Robert G. Brewer. This doctor was permitted to practice at least 11 years after serious questions were raised about his competence, in spite of mounting complaints, complications and even deaths. His story exposes a system of private agencies, individuals and government authorities that is shrouded in secrecy, designed to protect livelihoods, not lives."
