    As a Health Educator in the school system I found that this show was very educational and accurate with the information shown. It let us see what truly goes on in a trauma hospital. I do hope this show is renewed. Oz is the man! He has brought more understanding to the area of health over the years.

    My husband & I loved the television show N.Y. Med!! We want to see it come back as a regular series. We love the reality of real life episodes in the day to day life of a hospital emergency room, doctors & nurses.

    This show needs to be renewed, it is educational and shows how the medical professionals have to make life and death decisions on a daily basis. I miss the show and found myself looking forward to new episodes with Doctor Oz weekly.

    Looks like this has already been cancelled – since I can’t get for the last couple weeks. Leave it to ABC – once my fav network. No morning news (unless your count the marqueed headlines relegated to the bottom of the screen) while dancing poodles have untold time wasted on them. NY Med was a great show, and looked forward to it all week. Screw ABC – gone to NBC, PBS, and (gulp) FOX

    hooked on it in the first few minutes==the best medical reality show and really promotes organ donation–i always thought “no way=i’m keeping what i have” now after watching
    ny med my whole family is leaning towards becoming donors==great show how it returns

    I love NY Med–it is real and shows successful and unsuccessful outcomes. I also love that the nurses are such a large part of the story too. It is what really happens. The patients are real too, and that is a breath of fresh air. Please renew!!

    This is an excellent show! I love the excitement of life in the ER and following the lives of real nurses and doctors. This TV show could literally save a life. People are unaware of symtoms they might be having and what they could mean, until they see a show like this. Please do not cancel it!

  9. Mary Curbelo says

    NY Med is a very entertaining show. Who needs Gray’s Anatomy when you have the real thing. I so hope it won’t be cancelled.
