Misanthropic Dr. John Becker runs a clinic in New York City. He is assisted by super-capable Margaret Wyborn and less-than-capable Linda, who's only kept on because no one else can stand the doctor. Becker's best (some would say only) friend is the blind Jake Malinak, who runs a newsstand in the diner across the street. The diner used to be run by Reggie Kostas, but it has been taken over by Chris Conner, a lady whom Becker fluctuates between loathing and being attracted to. The diner is also frequented by Robert Benito, who is universally known as Bob and is the super at Becker's apartment (much to the doctor's regret).
He's only human... sometimes.

Did You Know?
During the Season 1 episode, "Saving Harvey Cohen", there is an unexpected shot of Bob. When Becker is walking down the hallway of his office you can see Bob walk past the hallway very quickly and casually in the background. His presence is never explained in this scene and it could very well have been a mistake of Saverio Guerra (Bob) walking through the set while it was being filmed. See more
