This drama series explores the full stories of four successful doctors: two brain surgeons, the emergency room doctor, and the chief gynecologist and obstetrician. Along the way, these doctors try to balance their personal lives with ups and downs at work within the American healthcare system.
Lenox Hill would have been a remarkable achievement regardless of timing, but the preoccupations of the coronavirus era are bound to afford the show more attention than it would have otherwise garnered.
Without denying flaws in the American medical system, Lenox Hill aims to inspire, and the eight-episode first season ends up more emotionally nourishing than intellectually satisfying - not that there's anything necessarily wrong with that.
With an openhearted curiosity about its subjects and a patient, clear eye, the series comes to no conclusions about the way we administer medical care now, but leaves its viewer with ample information to draw his or her own.
