Ramon Bieri


Mark Greene's daughter is still staying with him and he's finding it a challenge to balance the demands of his work and home life. Dr. Carter commits a major error in judgment after Dr. Anspaugh refuses to operate on a patient. Carter then convinces Dr. Hicks to undertake the procedure without mentioning his previous approach to Anspaugh. Called on the carpet, he's told that he may lose his residency. Dr. Benton surreptitiously obtains a copy of Carla Reece's medical reports in his attempts to learn more about her pregnancy. Carol Hathaway is fed up taking orders from doctors that are younger and less experienced than her and has a run-in with Maggie Doyle as a result. Written by garykmcd

You Bet Your Life (#3.18)
25 December 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Carol is having more trouble to take orders from doctors with less experience. I have a feeling she will end up becoming a doctor herself, and it is easier to be rooting for her now as I can't stand Maggie Doyle. Let Carol get her degree and kick her ass.

I liked how they did the story of Jeanie and her husband. Her taking care of the dying woman who got AIDS when cheating and passing it on to her baby wanting forgiveness from her husband. And so Jeanie goes and forgives her ex. Very sweet.

And Carter did a great job, I don't care about all those rules, he is the reason why a man survived.
