The King and Dr. Nick

What Really Happened to Elvis and Me

by George Nichopoulos, MD with Rose Clayton Phillips


Dr. George Nichopoulos

George C. Nichopoulos is the son of Greek immigrants. After two years in the Army Medical Corp, he entered the University of the South, where he gained his B.S. degree. He completed postgraduate work on a Doctorate in Clinical Physiology at the University of Tennessee and then received his medical degree from Vanderbilt University Medical School in Nashville. In 1967 Nichopoulos gained entertainer Elvis Presley as a patient. After Presley died in 1977, the Tennessee Board of Medical Examiners charged Nichopoulos with over-prescribing controlled substances to Presley during the final months before his death. He was acquitted, but his license was suspended later on the same charges. He maintained a private practice from 1986 until 1995 when his medical license was revoked. His re-application for a medical license has been denied twice. Nichopoulos resides in Memphis with his wife Edna. They have 3 children and 4 grandchildren.
