It's a scary sight when there is not one but two doctors by your bedside, right? Not to mention the fact that there is a worried husband by your side too. Hopefully, this woman is not receiving the worst news anyone could ever here.
Under most circumstances, no one wants to be under the watchful eye of anyone, but if you're in the hospital, Max is the guy you want in your corner. With him on your case, you're guaranteed quality care.
Max is the new medical director at New Amsterdam, and his outlook on how to best treat patients effectively may be a bit controversial for the others. He proposes a system that will have them healing as many people as they can before they're stopped, but what will the others have to say about that?
It's not a medical series until you see a doctor or two racing down the hallways during an emergency. New Amsterdam is no exception. Of course, Max seems like the type of guy who will always be on the move if it means providing his patients with quality care.
Max and Iggy have a chat in what appears to be a room for children. Will one of the many cases that flood the hospital have to do with a child with psychological needs that need to be met? We'll have to see!
Max: Unlike the previous medical director, I actually expect you to practice medicine at this hospital because I don't know, that's your job. Helen: You're funny. Max: You said that. Helen: I'll tell you what, I'll continue giving speeches all over the world because you can't afford the type of publicity I give this hospital. And I'll continue my on-air appearances with Ellen, Oprah, and anyone else powerful enough to go by one name because someone has to remind New York that even though New Amsterdam is an underfunded public hospital, we can still go toe-to-toe with the privates from basic care to state of the art procedures. I will be back next week with lunch at the Tavern. My treat.
