A show about the things that patients don't know about their doctors
16 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Heartbeat was a short lived drama about the drama behind the scenes at a Women's Health clinic headed up by Kate Mulgrew. Story lines included her relationship with fellow doctor on staff, Leo as well as the lives of the other physicians as taking place within the clinic. Kudos to Laura Johnson for her role as a no-nonsense female physician. One of her most memorable quotes: "Take a picture, it'll last longer" directed at a crew of lazy construction workers taking a timeout for a catcall. At it's core, Heartbeat was a reminder of the miracle of life, as almost every episode played out scenes of the miracles of giving birth and bringing new life into the world.
