Despite being instrumental in figuring out the proper diagnosis and treatment for a complicated patient in last week’s episode, Dr. Shaun Murphy has still failed to fall into the good graces of the new chief of surgery, Dr. Han.
On this Monday’s new episode of ABC’s The Good Doctor, Shaun continues to struggle with being removed from his comfort zone in the operating room. As a result, Shaun is forced to find another way to help out the team he’s become so akin to working with at St. Bonaventure, but will Dr. Han continue to block his efforts? Check out the official synopsis and preview for Monday’s episode titled Breakdown below.
“Dr. Shaun Murphy is desperate to join the team on a dangerous procedure involving a patient’s tumor removal. However, having been removed from the surgery team by Dr. Jackson Han (guest star Daniel Dae Kim), Shaun must use his talents to help figure out the cause of an infant’s injuries.”
