Medical Drama at its best, 15 October 2002
Author: raysond from Chapel Hill, North Carolina

Before there were the onslaught of such Medical shows as "Trapper John" "St. Elsewhere","Chicago Hope","Doogie Howser,MD","ER","Presidio Med", there was one show that brought great medical drama at its very best.......

That show was "Marcus Welby,M.D.".

The series ran on ABC-TV from 1969-76. During its run on the air,the show garnered several Emmy nominations including one for best dramatic series which Robert Young won for best actor for one of the episodes which was directed by an unknown at the time who would go one to directed several episodes of the series before he established himself as one of Hollywood's biggest producers of all-time. Need I say more?

As for the series itself,the show dealt with several situations in and around the confines of his medical offices and his confrontations with the medical establishments at the local hospital where a patient's confidentality was being discussed(which was the focus of some of the episodes). Some topics on the show dealt with cancer patients,the effects of retardation in children,and the overall situations of the medical world,and one episode in particular dealt with two topics;one was the effects of depression and the other was with alcoholism and so much more. The show was produced in by the guidelines instructed by the American Medical Association and this series was the first to show a surgical procedure done by the book and its complications to follow. Very deep.

For one,Doc Welby stood his ground and spoke out where his patients were concerned and sometimes aided by his assistant,Dr. Kiley(played by James Brolin),and nurse Consuelo(played by Elena Verdugo). Unlike the other medical series that came out about the same time(Medical Center which was very controversial,but was on a rival network which went off the air

a year before this series did),but in all this was a TV classic that has stood the test of time and will continued to do so.

This show had a lot of guest stars on it than any other show,but it had some that were just starting out in some of them....check out guest appearances by actors Sharon Gless,Joanna Cameron,Heather Menzies, Richard Thomas,Teresa Graves,and Arthur Hill(who was sometimes the medical lawyer,Owen Marshall for Doc Welby and Dr. Kiley).
