The Hippocratic Oath

Cameron Mitchell stars in this Zane Grey Theater story of an idealistic young doctor who settles in a town that's in need of another medical man as it is growing. The problem according to the local Ponderosa owner Ken Lynch he treats the wrong kind of people, homesteaders. Lynch makes Rufe Ryker in Shane look like Albert Schweitzer.

When he gets called on to treat a gunshot case it turns out to be a homesteader who robs one of Lynch's men carrying Lynch's money. That puts him in more conflict with Lynch.

This could have been a much better episode, but it's resolved rather weakly considering the kind of bully Lynch is made out to be.
