Storyline

Joe Bogert was an older, kind-hearted New York City general practitioner who genuinely cared about his patients--whether or not they could afford to pay him. While loving his longtime wife Annie and married daughter Laurie, tossing mean-spirited barbs at his fussy son-in-law Fred and hanging out with pals Happy and Ben, Joe got involved with the lives of his patients the old-fashioned way. Later Joe started seeing patients at the Westside Clinic, dumped his family and began spending more time with the wacky clinic employees. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@soltec.net>

A long forgotten show about a kind of doctor that doesn't exist anymore
10 September 2016 | by AlsExGalSee all my reviews

Like the other reviewer, there was just something about this show, because it only lasted a season and a half yet 40 years later I remember it. And I was a teenager at the time. The first season there was more emphasis on the home as Doc (unbelievably today) took middle of the night phone calls from patients, did house calls, including the patients coming to his home! The suits must have not liked this because season two changed things pretty much completely with Doc at the clinic seeing a bunch of wacky patients with an even wackier staff. It was like they were trying to turn Doc into a medical Barney Miller. The first season had a kind of soft and easy guitar accompanied musical intro. The second season episode intros had Doc marching down the street to a tune that seemed part Scottish and part John Phillip Sousa.

At any rate, it disappeared off of the face of the earth, nobody seems to remember it but me and the other reviewer, I don't even remember seeing it run as a rerun, and as for DVD? Forget about it. I do wish this would resurface sometime somewhere, even if just on youtube.
