The fifth daughter of a wealthy Boston physician, Michaela Quinn defies the conventions of post-Civil War society by following in her father's footsteps. After his death, 'Dr. Mike' leaves Boston and moves to the frontier town of Colorado Springs, where she finds the citizens less than thrilled by the concept of a woman doctor. While she struggles to earn their trust, Mike's life is complicated by a growing relationship with mountain man Byron Sully, and the unexpected responsibility of raising three orphaned children.

Dr. purchased her step-children's late boarding house in Colorado Springs to use as her current medical clinic. The green sign advertising her business was purchased by the town for her birthday. See more »

Reverend. How do we look?

This is my favorite show. I became hooked shortly after I started to watch it.Dr. Mike is a brave, stubborn woman who knows what she wants (atleast most of the time) & goes after it. She is a great mom to Matthew, Colleen, & Brian and also to Katie. She's also a great doctor. The medical procedures they show on the show are all actual procedures they did back in the time it takes place, too. Sully is also a great guy who reins in Dr. Mike whenever she needs it. He is an excellent friend to all of his friends. The show deals with real issues, too. They dealt with prejudice(when Robert E. buys his house & Dr. Mike the clinic), gambling(Matthew), drinking (Jake), etc.In short it is a wonderful show.
