Real Doctor Reacts to THE GOOD DOCTOR | Medical Drama Review | Doctor Mike

  • Published on Apr 15, 2018
  • Wow! Thank you so much for supporting the Real Doctor Reacts to series. I said that if you get the grey's anatomy video to 15k likes I'll do another episode and you CRUSHED it by getting it 200k+ likes. I dove into the comments section to see what medical tv drama you wanted me to review next and it seemed like the good doctor was the obvious choice. Get ready TV Doctors, because Dr. Mike is coming for you =]
    Full disclosure, I have never watched an episode of the good doctor on ABC so I decided to go ahead and start my tv medical drama review off with the first episode ( good doctor 1x01 ) of the series. I was really curious myself to see if the good doctor is a medically accurate show.
    I really did enjoy this medical tv show because I think it did a lot of things well. It gave an interesting look into what life is like a for a surgeon and a resident. Being a surgical resident is not an easy job and to make the situation even more complex Dr. Sean Murphy has autism so they did a great job of breaking down these circumstances.
    I hope you enjoy this episode of Real Doctor Watches The Good Doctor / Real Doctor Reacts to the Good Doctor. If you want me to continue making this tv medical drama series please like the video and leave me a comment on which medical tv show or episode you'd like for me to review next. Love you all!

      Doctor Mike dr; I’ve heard little to no info on idiopathic intracranial hypertension. It’s a unknown to many disease and has spinal fluid drainage from my nose and temporary blindness and dizziness with no actual relief. My symptoms increase when stressed.... what should I expect?

    Just because he's better than you doesn't mean it's "superhuman". There are doctors just like him in the real world. And so what, if they skip all of the paperwork? They're not pretending that it doesn't happen, they're just skipping it because it's a boring process and it wouldn't be a necessary good thing for it, as it's a TV show.

    No offence but i thought a doctor is super busy. why does doctor mike have time to make these videos?

  • Theo Price-Sherrie

    Shows like this offer great representation of/education about those with ASD (although cases vary hugely) while remaining digestible and engaging for the general public. Personally, I was diagnosed with (lower end/not severe) Aspergers when I was 10/11 because of my very noticeable symptoms in childhood. The symptoms never totally disappeared, but as an 18 year old, the social struggles are much less obvious/intrusive. If anything, I automatically hyper analyse others and social situations I'm in so to compensate and I'm DEFINITELY not an emotionless robot (I'm more of an empath, lol). Things I still struggle with are extended eye-contact (IT'S SO UNCOMFORTABLE), over-sensitivity to external stimuli (sometime sends me sensory overload) and general social awkwardness/anxiety. Fortunately, these are all somewhat manageable and no longer dictate my life as I've taught myself coping mechanisms and methods of precaution :D

    I remember I stepped on a huge rusty nail as a kid (like 8 years old) I probably coulda used that advice earlier because I bled everywhere and had to go to the hospital because my blood almost instantly soaked right through the bandages, towel and down my dad's shirt.. Fun times.

    Doctors have to deal with a lot of "That's what she said" jokes, i assume.

    I am a 19 year old college student who has Aspergers (a spectrum of Autism). I am pursuing a degree in Athletic Training and Sports medicine. I feel having Aspergers has helped me in the field during my internship with HS sports being able to stay aware at all times my surroundings and staying on high alert of my environment. I know many other people with the same thing who are amazing in their different careers. Don’t let titles define you and go with what you love.

    As an adult with autism, I find that other autistic people are far nicer, kinder, and more understanding in general. Especially since if you say "I would like to stop talking and do something else now." They know that means what you said, and not something you didn't say like "I hate you and wish to murder you in your sleep."
    I think it would be better if instead of teaching autistic kids to mimic normal behavior, if we instead taught normal kids to mimic autistic behavior. Especially since normal people don't seem to be capable of liking things. You just... do things, and nothing seems to ever be really important to you because you never make any of the shows, books, or games you consume into a part of you life to a greater degree than "sometimes I play/watch/read this". It's honestly depressing, and makes it almost impossible to be friends because... You're just not invested in anything as far as I can tell so I dont know what to do with you for the sake of friendship activities as understanding what you like is nearly impossible.

    My hubs is a young cop. He’s always telling people if there’s a medical emergency instead of saying “someone” call 911, point at a specific person and say “YOU call 911.” I guess there are instances when minutes are lost because everyone in a large group is panicking and assumes someone else is calling. Interesting phenomenon.

    I gotta say that ........ Shawn's social reactions are both accurate yet a bit exaggerated at the same time. I know this because I, myself, my dad, and younger sister have Asperger's syndrome which is a milder form of autism (even though the only difference, minor or major, is that there is no speech developmental delays with those with Asperger's like there is with autism). It's also heartbreaking and frustrating that it is slightly exaggerated in a sense that his mannerisms are very much ......... a tad but unrealistic. Besides from familial and personal experience with autism, I have been around other kids and adults with various forms of autism, mild, moderate, and sevant, and the actor who is playing Shawn, while being obvious is also trying too hard to be that way. His characteristics and mannerisms is accurate, but the way he is presenting himself is just off. The best examples of a male actor portraying someone with autism is in the movies "Rain Man" and JK Rowling's "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them" courtesy of Newt Scamander. The only TV shows that I know of that features a great portrayal of an autistic person is called "Alphas" courtesy of the character Gary Bell and the TV show "Touch".
    Just watching this clip of the "Good Doctor" ............. I don't think I would watch this myself but I'm not going to discourage anyone from watching it if that's what they prefer to watch. So, yea, that's that.

    I love the medical shows on tv these days, number one being Chicago Med. Here’s a question. It seems a lot of the time when a baby is delivered on one of those shows, it is not breathing right away and needs immediate attention. This happened yet again on The Good Doctor tonight. How long can a newborn be like this without suffering irreversible health issues ... ballpark?
