Netflix seems to have realized that sometimes real-life stories can be more compelling than anything that can be cooked up in a writers' room. So if you are a fan of medical dramas like 'Grey's Anatomy', 'E.R.', or love the medical mysteries solved on 'House', you are in luck. Netflix's 'Lenox Hill' documentary is an intimate look into the lives of four doctors, on and off the clock, and their patients at Lenox Hill Hospital, a 450-bed acute care facility, located on Manhattan's Upper East Side --  one of New York City's busiest hospitals. 

Release date

The documentary premieres on June 10 on Netflix. 

Plot 

An intimate look at the lives of four doctors — two brain surgeons, an emergency room physician, and a Chief Resident OBGYN — as they navigate the highs and lows of working at the renowned Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. With extraordinary access and an unflinching eye, the series shows each physician's struggle to balance their personal and professional lives and delves into each patient's personal journey. From birth to brain surgery, each case offers a rare inside look at the complex, fascinating, and emotional world of medicine.
