A really great medical film to see
12 September 2003 | by smdm916See all my reviews

This movie served as the Pilot for the Medical Center tv series that stared Chad Everett and ran from 1969-1976 on CBS-TV. James Daly ended up reprising his role for the tv series which was very popular during the early 1970's.
