Westside Medical (ABC 1977, James Sloyan, Linda Carlson)



Westside Medical was a short lived, 13 episode, medical drama series about a trio of highly dedicated doctors working at a large city hospital but also finding time to run a medical center across the street.

ABC had high hopes for the series placing it in the same time slot as recently departed Streets of San Francisco but it wasn’t to be. Series creator Barry Oringer knew a little about the medical genre having worked on Ben Casey.
