Manny (Rick Gonzales) is Rush’s drug dealer and one of the few people who actually understands the enigmatic doctor. Rush is Manny’s favorite client, but definitely not his easiest. Behind Manny’s laid-back exterior there’s an ambitious entrepreneur running a successful business. Like Alex, Manny is close with his family. And unlike Rush, he’s close with his father. Manny has a history of being a ladies’ man but he’s looking to settle down.
