From the cheery Dr. Patch Adams to the eccentric Alan Parrish and the wondrous boy who never grew up (Peter Pan), Robin Williams brought life, warmth, and a great deal of humour to the characters he portrayed throughout his career. Here are some...
Patch Adams, M.D., is a social revolutionary and one-man show who believes in "horse and buggy" medicine and never charges his patients a cent! In 1971, the author and a few of his colleagues founded the Gesundheit institute in Northern Virginia. During the next twelve years, they operated a home-based family medical practice and managed to treat more than 15,000 people without payment, malpractice insurance, or formal facilities. Patch Adams continues on his life mission to achieve the goal of building a fully functioning, free health care center.BECOME A FAN
