"The Good Doctor" starts Season 2 as Shaun helps the homeless
“The Good Doctor” Season 2 resumed Monday Sept. 24, with an episode called “Hello”. I was out of town and the timing conflicts with PBS POV and NBC “Manifest” which I will have to catch up with.
But I did watch this episode through my cable provider. Shaun visits skid row to give medical treatment, and becomes very determined to help one man who shows signs of a brain tumor, after a colleague (Neil, played by Nicholas Gonzalez) first suspects meningitis. The man has forgotten who he was and after leaving home when his wife forced him to leave because of sudden domestic abuse. At the end he is reunited with his wife.
Shaun faces social pressure to spend time with his mentor Dr. Aaron Glassman (Richard Schiff).
The doctors also do a piggyback heart transplant. I’ve never heard of that before.
