This is the one you've all been asking for. Scrubs.
Ever since I started my medical training in 2007 all of my friends have been telling me that I MUST watch the TV show Scrubs but for some reason, I was always a little hesitant to start it. Maybe because I looked at medicine as a serious field, it didn't make sense to watch a comedy about it.
Well, now I am taking your advice and watching the first episode ever of the medical drama. Although I think this show is less of a medical drama is more of a medical comedy or satire. I can see why many medical professionals enjoy this show because working many hours in the hospital system can leave you feeling frustrated at times,
Now, as far as my opinion goes I have to be honest. This show is not as appealing to me as it is for most of my friends. I feel like they take easy shots at medicine and exaggerate a lot for the sake of humor (especially Zach Braff ) Not sure why, but the humor didn't land for me that often. I also think I would probably need to watch a few more episodes as the pilot is rarely the best one. Also, Zach Braff irritates me just a little a bit in his acting.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy this episode of Real Doctor Watches Scrubs / Real Doctor Reacts to Scrubs. If you want me to continue making this medical drama review series please like the video and leave me a comment on which tv drama show or episode you'd like for me to review next. Love you all!

+CrazyFish The fck are you talking about, I ended up in the hospital after a horrible bike crash, was pronounced dead, it ended up much better and after three weeks in a coma I ended up being better, now three years later all I still have left is epilepsy but compared to what it could have been I couldn't be more grateful for all the amazing doctors, nurses and general health care system. Yea some people with minor injuries or bad health need a change in lifestyle like vegetables and more natural food (less fat) and stuff like that but real injuries can't be treated by nuts what the f... are you talking about??
A lot of the negative aspects are addressed later ie the lying to pts to avoid lawsuits part. It was a show that was started when the medical practice mindset was in the midst of change so it seems a lot of episodes spend time doing commentary on the various types of people in the hospital. The show does overall place an emphasis that its not always doom and gloom, most physicians truly do care about their patients though we show it in different ways, and that docs are human and we have emotion, reactions, and we do err. Each time I watch, I learn and reflect on something new about my own experiences.
Doctor Mike I am about to start going to college of four years of biology then to med school. I served 8 years in the Military and was diagnosed with PTSD so I am a bit scared but I want to prove myself that I can do it and to others that don't think I am smart enough or will give up. I just need advice and what I should do to become successful. Thank you so much.
Very Respectfully a fan.

Well scrubs are actually quite accurate, but not about medical things.. About being the intern or resident. And the scenario was made from one doctor's life actually. And yes there are steriotypes, but not everywhere those are gone. I'm a senior resident from Lithuania and I could relate to a lot of that, the angry nurses, the sarcastic and bit...chy attendings.. But everyday you become more and more and more part of the team. So I can relate and laugh from that. But this show has some interesting characters, for axample the janitor.... he is mental.. :D
Doctor Mike, Scrubs is one of the best shows a human being could watch. The reason why is because it has life lessons that remind us to be better human beings in subtle ways that maybe we forget as we all get older. Season 1 wasn't as good as following seasons for many reasons. But Dr. Cox "wrong" response in season 1 in the tune of Big Ben chiming, is one of the best jokes I've ever seen and heard. It seems simple but is actually a multi-layered joke. The implication was that not only was J.D. wrong, he was wrong in a epically, most spiritually way.
Following seasons, the show got much better. When it first came on, I WASN'T into it. But about season 5, I realized how great it was. Season 1 was the year 2000. So, somethings may have been different from when you did your interning (2017?). It IS a comedy so you do need to give more leeway. Scrubs is loosely based on real doctors John Dorian and Dr. Molly Clock, if I remember correctly. And I think both were consultants for the show I think.
As nurses on my unit, we also still use pagers. Typical night for me (yay night shift) includes 6 patients per nurse. Our floor holds 24 patients, so that comes to 4 nurses, 1 (sometimes 2) PCAs, and a clerk. We need those pagers, or we’d never survive.
Can you please do a doctor reacts to video of Scrubs season 8 episode 3. That episode deals with the concept of death for doctors and I'm really interested in knowing what a real professional who has to go through this, feels when it happens.
Dude i dont know who told you that you resemble mcdreamy, this is my 4th time watching one of your videos and the way you talk reminds me of Hank from Royal Pains played by Mark Feuerstein.
You should react to royal pains, the personal doctor for the Hamptons.
I'm a little concerned that you addressed the Tylenol question from the perspective of lack of confidence rather than mentioning that acetaminophen is one of the most common overdoses in medical settings. Double checking a patient's Tylenol dose could save a life!
Oh man. I remember this show. It was so funny, I never saw it as a "doctors" comedy. Only a comedy, that could be replaced with any other profession. Then I became a doctor. And today I watched your video. I watched JD scared and anxious and I appreciate the show in such a different light. I was so confused and scared as JD in my first day. I dont like this show anymore.
I really want to be a surgeon, I’m not sure what I want to specialize in but it’s just so amazing. One thing that really makes me doubt I have a chance is that I’m not very smart, or at least I think so. My friends always tell me that I wouldn’t be able to handle all the work to become a surgeon and that I’m dumb. Also, I don’t really have any surgeons or doctors in my family, just a couple nurses and they don’t really live near me, I’m definitely not rich either, I’m almost poor.
I'm not saying that all doctors are psychopaths, but psychopathy would be an extremely good trait for doctors. You get to be a hero and satisfy your sense of self importance, but at the same time, you won't have to deal with a whole lot of guilt over making the wrong decisions (but you'd have an incentive not to make mistakes because of the image you'd have to uphold for yourself.)
You should definitely do an episode from one of the later seasons, it’s more comedic later on but also can get pretty heavy at times. Honestly scrubs is one of my late night go to shows when I’m doing homework and want something on in the background, it’s played on multiple channels so it’s usually on at least one channel at night😅
'and it allows me to continue making this content' I really don't think youtube or non-subscribers are stopping you from making more content. They might encourage you to make more but I doubt anyone will physically stop you from doing so otherwise.
Just out of curiosity, in your opinion, which show (out of all the Doctor or medical shows even Mash) do you think is the most accurate and the most inaccurate? With so many new shows out there I just wonder what you think??
In the UK, everyone who makes mistakes that cause harm or could've caused harm is basically obliged to tell patients about their mistakes. You'll be struck off the register for lying about it. Also, I don't think our doctors get sued as often - which helps tremendously when admitting mistakes
I've always wanted to be an anesthesiologist and study at Stony Brook University (I live in Woodbury, near Syosset; Stony Brook is about 45 mins-1 hr away) ~ Do you have any experience with anesthesiologists, and how are their feelings (normally) towards their jobs?? (I LOVE watching your videos, they're so funny yet so educational) ~~ #ASKDOCTORMIKE
Have you ever experienced rounds as a patient? I understand how important they are, but as someone who practically grew up in the hospital, I hated them. I have a rare congential disorder, and was the first patient who ever presented with it at Toronto's SCH. As a child it was very intimidating, then as a teenager it just felt invasive and humiliating. Different doctors, different hospitals, but it was always a negative experience for me. From the moment I'd hear them outside my door I'd be a wreck. Then they would stand there and talk about me, for quite a while. Then as I lay there in my bed, trying to make myself disappear, a bunch of strangers, usually men, would shuffle in and surround my bed. And talk about me some more. Sometimes there would be an exam, which felt like a performance, with all eyes on me. And after they would leave, I would complain to my mother, who would dismiss my concerns and make me feel guilty because 'how else were they going to learn?' Luckily I haven't been hospitalized in ages, so I'm wondering if things have changed?
Loving your videos. I'm a nurse, and worked the night shift for years. I've had a few patients who died (all were expected). I never saw a resident come up to do an exam. As the nurse, I would conduct the exam, listen for breathing and heartbeat, call the family, and fill out the death certificate for the doctor to sign later. Is that not the norm? But YES! The first time I had to call the family to notify them of the death was very difficult.
