It honestly is fascinating to witness how such medical personnel balance their professional and personal commitments while dealing with crises on a regular basis.
With the show relying on one-on-one interviews to help viewers understand the workings of a hospital, it introduces us to Dr. Elliot Grodstein, who specializes as a transplant surgeon.
