It’s clear that Dr. Shaun Murphy is a technically-skilled and capable surgeon, however, at times his autism can cause him to struggle a bit with his bedside manner. In Monday’s new episode of ABC’s hit medical drama The Good Doctor, Shaun will begin to learn the meaning of the word, “Empathy.”
In the preview for Monday’s episode, we see Shaun questioning his ability to be a good surgeon if he has difficulty understanding the emotions of his patients. Additionally, we see Dr. Claire Browne and Dr. Morgan Reznick encounter a medical case which will, without a doubt, lead to moral debate.
Check out the synopsis and preview for the episode titled Empathy below.
