Watch now: Lenox Hill

This is not Reality TV. This is an unembellished docuseries that follows Dr. David Langer (Chair, Neurosurgery), Dr. John Boockvar (Vice Chair, Neurosurgery), Amanda Little-Richardson (Chief Resident, OBGYN), and Mirtha Macri (Emergency Medicine) at the Upper East Side Manhattan hospital, Lenox Hill.

Directed by by Adi Barash and Ruthie Shatz – we are reminded that these are not scripted characters; they are human, and this is an intimate look into their daily lives. The ethos at Lenox Hill is empathy and humanity and each patient’s story is interwoven throughout the 9-episode series. Throughout, we watch as this compassion drives every decision made inside Lenox Hill and we are deeply moved by the humility of these doctors and the way in which they so delicately work with their patients.

we are reminded that every individual in this world is living a complex and unique life despite our complete lack of awareness of it

As Dr. Langer steps into the bustling streets of NYC and sits on the subway on the way home after a grueling brain surgery, we are reminded that every individual in this world is living a complex and unique life despite our complete lack of awareness of it. Thank you to Adi Barash and Ruthie Shatz for bringing awareness to the critically important care that these doctors provide. Available on Netflix. 5/5 stars.
