The show isn't as comprehensive in its scope as it might be intending at points, but there's still plenty of fertile storytelling ground where it does focus its attention.

While a deeply moving tribute to those we have lately come to call "heroes," this proves they've been heroes all along. (It was filmed before the pandemic.) A can't-miss beauty.

There are clearly many, many things wrong with the US health system. But there's no question that country is also home to some remarkable health professionals and this deceptively simple documentary provides a terrific showcase for four of them.

Not everything has a happy outcome, but the series is startlingly candid, especially about procedures and choices. Not everyone makes the decision you expect.

Jun 9, 2020 | Full Review…

Without denying flaws in the American medical system, Lenox Hill aims to inspire, and the eight-episode first season ends up more emotionally nourishing than intellectually satisfying - not that there's anything necessarily wrong with that.

Jun 9, 2020 | Full Review…

With an openhearted curiosity about its subjects and a patient, clear eye, the series comes to no conclusions about the way we administer medical care now, but leaves its viewer with ample information to draw his or her own.

Jun 8, 2020 | Full Review…

Lenox Hill would have been a remarkable achievement regardless of timing, but the preoccupations of the coronavirus era are bound to afford the show more attention than it would have otherwise garnered.

Jun 5, 2020 | Full Review…

... probably the most engrossing and affecting long-form documentary I've seen in a while.

Jun 29, 2020 | Full Review…

We get the human side here. How they feel about patients and their diagnoses or treatments.

Jun 16, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The storytelling is clean and fleet, Barash and Shatz presenting everyone who enters the frame as fully dimensional human beings, flawed but striving.

Jun 12, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Emotionally gripping, sweet and scary, it shows everything from childbirth to brain surgery.

I'm not normally a huge fan of medical shows but this one sucked me in.

    I work at Northwell as a social worker and I enjoyed having a birds eye view of other departments. It is a very emotional series and I did not binge watch this because of that. I have learned from watching and I'm struck mostly by the humanism that is displayed. Very proud to work at Northwell and in healthcare. I hope the series continues with a second season.

    This documentary grew on me as I began getting to know the Drs personal and professional lives. Intially I viewed the male Drs as a bit arrogant but as time went on I saw they really had heart as well has larger than life personalities. Loved the female Drs from the beginning. So genuine and easy to read. The series did draw me in and brought me to tears many times

    This is the BEST medical show I have ever seen. It rings true and is relatable to all. As an RN I was hesitant to start watching but once I started - I couldn't stop. Put it on your watch list STAT (for non health peeps that is ASAP)

    The Lenox Hill series on Netflix was amazing. It was realistic and showed the professional and compassionate side of medicine. It proved that all medical personnel truly care about their patients.
