TV doctors #8 – Dr. Naomi Bennett
Naomi Bennett, M.D. was the OB/GYN fertility specialist and bestie to Addison Montgomery on ABC’s Private Practice, the first Grey’s Anatomy spin-off from creator Shonda Rhimes. First played by Merrin Dungey in the backdoor pilot, then by Audra Montgomery through Season 4, there was plenty of drama between her and her ex-husband, played by Taye Diggs.
TV doctors #6 – Dr. Otis Cole, Off the Map
Otis Cole (played by Jason Winston George) was “tough, plain-spoken, and highly respected at Clinica Cruz del Sur,” according to wetpaint.com. Off the Map, another creation of Shonda Rhimes (Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice), although critically acclaimed, only lasted one season on ABC.
TV doctor #2
Dr. Sam Bennett (Taye Diggs), cardiothoracic surgeon, founding member of the Oceanside clinic, and pop author on ABC’s Private Practice. Like most of the night-time medical dramas, it’s all about the passion, with the glitz of a SoCal medical practice as a backdrop. But we watch this show for the hotties and the drama. Diggs’ portrayal of Dr. Bennett made TV Guide’s “15 Hottest TV Doctors.” Oh the heat! Oh the drama!
