Which Medical Show's Staff Would You Want as Your Doctors?

Which Medical Show's Staff Would You Want as Your Doctors?

A recent story about trusting the TV docs of House more than the ones of Grey's Anatomy got me thinking about which television medical team I'd actually want treating me. They all seem to have their pros and cons. (House: plus one for genius doctor; minus one for felonies committed in the course of treatment. ER: plus one for efficiency, minus one for all the tragedies that seem to befall County General.) All things considered, which current TV doctors would you most want at your bedside?

My other vote is a choice between Ben Casey or Dr. Kildare. I know I'm dusting off some old film canisters saying this.

oh please. if i was really sick and someone was like, "here's your doctor, izzie stevens..." i'd run for the hills. those people are nuts.

I'd pick Dr. House, but none of the others! They're all too wrapped up in their personal lives to pay attention!

Scrubs! If JD messes up, Dr. Cox will save me. :D

House! He is able to do anything! Seriously, crazy diseases, with impossible symptoms. Also he won't let you die because he has a need of getting it right and getting you better.

I picked House, because I love the show, but I'd be OK with either House or ER. All those other idiots care about is doing each other in supply closets and what not. Funny to watch, but don't come near me with a needle.

I LOVE HOUSE IT IS THE ONLY SHOW ON TV THAT I MUST WATCH WEEKLY. I CANT SAY MUCH FOR HIS BEDSIDE MANNER BUT IF ONLY I COULD HAVE A REAL DR. LIKE THAT. HE IS BRILLIANT!

no competition. SCRUBS. how amazing would it be to have JD or Elliot as your doctor (with Cox checking in on them), Turke as your surgeon, Carla as your nurse, and the Janitor cleaning up messes right outside your room?

people who said house lied. shame on you. i love house, more than you can imagine but i was ture to myself, it'd really upset me if i was sick and they treated me that way. i always go to private doctors like private practice and they're super nice to me, so i'm spoiled.

ER. The house staff is good, but i don't like pain and near death experiences... ER doctors look more competent.

Is it sad that I've considered this in real life before? House is a freaking genius. I pick him hands down.

I feel like ER has always had the most realistic doctors. If I was gonna sleep with a medical staff, I would go with Greys.

ER because they seem to care about their patient.

I picked House, well, mainly in case I needed surgery then Chase would be there. But also becuase in the end, House always gets it right...eventually. I wouldn't mind Scrubs either, but only if my condition wasn't too serious. I would not want any of the Grey's doctors though. They are way too freakin self involved.

House hands down. He might be a jerk but he saves patients. He diagnoses the undiagnosable. Ironically over the summer I was hospitalized with a serious condition that it normally seen in older patients. Doctors were baffled by it. It was like an episode of House. The fun part? I was at Princeton hospital. (We only have one hospital, Princeton Medical Center. Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital obviously doesn't exist. That aerial shot in the credits is of the Princeton campus)Regardless of the absence of House, my doctors were pretty fantastic.

I picked Private Practice, you get more personal time with the doctor to bring up any issue you have. Plus so many docs in one area (no referrals :-)).House is insane, the people on scrubs are way too careless(funny to watch not be apart of), and the people on greys are competition oriented.... i don't watch ER so i donno about that one.
