Plot Summary

This series brought the character of "Trapper John" from M*A*S*H in as the Chief of Surgery at San Francisco Memorial Hospital. Joining him on the surgical staff was a brilliant young surgeon, G. Alonzo "Gonzo" Gates, who had also served in a MASH unit - in Vietnam. The show covered standard medical stories, but it also took chances with such subjects as AIDS, the Epstein-Barr Virus, and Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome. Written by Linda Adams

Edit
Trivia Pernell Roberts publicly denounced series television when he left Bonanza (1959) for theatre in 1965. He decided to return to television because his salary would help support his aging father. He also felt that he would be able to exercise his acting range and address social issues, two things he felt he was rarely able to do on "Bonanza". See more »
