In some ways, the rich are no different from the rest of us: they get sick, get hurt, and need doctors to figure out what makes them ache. "Royal Pains: Season One" follows the misadventures of a doctor who finds himself at their beck and call, and it has the right mix of everything -- luxurious living in the Hamptons, weird medical crises, and a fair amount of humor.

Hank Lawson (Mark Feuerstein) is a successful young E.R. doctor in New York... until the day when a wealthy trustee dies because he focused on saving a dying teenager. Trying to distract him from his woes, his brother Evan (Paulo Costanzo) whisks him to an exclusive party in the Hamptons, at the palatial mansion of the reclusive, absurdly-wealthy Boris Rabanisch (Campbell Scott).

Then a woman nearly dies at the party, and Hank manages to save both her and Boris' treasured privacy. As a result, he soon finds himself drafted as the new concierge doctor for the wealthy Hamptons residents, along with Evan and a physician's assistant named Divya (Reshma Shetty). And his work often brings him to see Jill Casey (Jill Flint), the administrator of a local hospital.

Among the cases: breast implant disasters, an epidemic at a "bark mitzvah," a mystery shark bite, a hemophiliac teenager and his "cyberchondriac" girlfriend, and mystery ailments afflicting a senator's son, a ballerina, a horseback rider, a restauranteur, and a bestselling illustrator. Since Hank cares more about curing people than making money, he also provides care for people who can't afford the best -- but the person who needs his help the most may also be the wealthiest.

I normally can't watch medical shows -- every time I try, I develop a massive case of "medical students' disease" and end up having to go watch "Psych" instead.

Of course, this review is from the perspective of only having seen the pilot so far, but this show was well acted, well thought out, and interesting.

Our hero is an emergency room doctor who was fired after a bum rap where he had two heart patients under treatment, and one (a rich patron of the hospital) died while he attended the second.

In an attempt to cheer him up, his brother takes him to the Hamptons for a party weekend. Accidental patients pop up despite his resistance to become involved as a 'private physician to the rich', and finally he gives in and agrees to stay in the area. He winds up agreeing partly because his other job opportunities appear to be blocked off for the time being, and because a local hospital administrator convinces him that he can help take some of the pressure from the local hospital staff, who are often beset by minor problems from rich and demanding people.

The show was amusing, sexy, and seemingly well informed. I don't know what the market really is for private physicians, but whether or not it exists, this show sold the possible concept acceptably.

Of course, the success of the show in the long term will depend on their ability to come up with a couple of medical problems per show that aren't repetitive or trite, or making the Doc look like too much of an unbelievable miracle worker at a house call. This will be a more challenging writing puzzle than a hospital based medical show, or the standard murder mystery fair that USA has also been quite successful with.

I'll be interested to see if they can pull this off show after show.

EDIT: Four years later, we're still watching every show with relish. They did pull it off. :-D

Overall it was much better than I thought it would be. Interesting characters, good writing, some very funny dialogue, and a good solid foundation to build a good series, which is going well so far.
The show, Season 1, which originally aired on USA network on June 4, 2009, features an E.R. Doctor, Hank, who gets fired from his job at the hospital, and finds himself offered the much coveted concierge Doctor in the Hampton's taking care of the rich and richer, for the summer, and despite some reservations takes the job. So each episode features some new client who he helps (or in some cases, saves). It reminded me a little of David Duchovny's character from the movie 'Playing God' due to Hank's sometimes 'outside the box' medical solutions.
I'll admit, when I saw the previews for this show they kept running on TV trying to drum up interest before the first air date on USA network, I thought it was a joke. I thought it was going to be very dumb.
However, I was pleasantly surprised. I've seen the actor playing Hank in other movies and tv shows (played a lawyer in West Wing, and the boyfriend/fiance of Toni Collette in the movie 'In Her Shoes'), and have enjoyed him as a performer. Well, he's really good in this series as well because you believe in him as the character Hank, and you want to see what he's going to do with the twists of each show. Plus he's surrounded by his team, a spunky female Physician's Assistant and Hank's brother the Accountant, which provide for another layer of entertainment and subplots that help fill out 'Hank Med'. And then of course there's the variety of Hampton hob-nobs with their issues as well that sort of round out the fun for each episode.
While I prefer some episodes to others (though that can be said of almost every series), I'm enjoying the added new addition to the somewhat 'Been-There-Done-That' that I've seen of television series.
