Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Most Educational‼️

If you can’t stomach these minor out patient videos, go watch a REAL AUTOPSY‼️The procedures are not gross at all. I’m just pleased that Dr. Lee has that excellent bedside manner, relaxes her patients, & has the proper ethical wherewithal to refer more difficult cases to other physicians. Basically, if you do not like this show for any reason, simply don’t watch it‼️Whining does no good. Go watch cartoons. I prefer medical shows where one can actually learn something.
