When the attractive administrator of the local hospital asks him to treat the town's less fortunate, he finds himself walking the line between doing well for himself and doing good for others.

Trivia

Reshma Shetty (Divya) is married to fellow actor Deep Katdare, and the last name of Divya's character on the show is Katdare. Deep Katdare also executive produced and acted in a movie, Hiding Divya (2006), which premiered three years before the premiere of Royal Pains (2009). Thus, both the first and last names of Resma Shetty's character on the show, Divya Katdare, are either a reference, or a tribute, to Shetty's real life husband. See more »

Don't give up on this show too soon!
20 May 2012 | by See all my reviews

Honestly, when I stared watching this show my expectations were pretty low. I thought the story seemed pretty boring and the setting - well I thought I've seen it all before. Moreover, I did not like ANY of the characters at first and some even annoyed me (like Jil and Evan - especially Evan!). However, the writers really develop all characters very well and after a couple of episodes I simply started to love each of them. Everyone has their own story and you simply get drawn into it and keep on wanting more. There is never too much drama, however there is ALWAYS something going on that keeps you watching. I believe this show has everything it takes: a bit of action, a bit of drama, a lot of fun and looots of nice, expensive locations, houses and cars. Do not give up on this show after the first episodes! Hank will not let you down, I swear!
