The Doctors are joined by actor Nicholas Gonzalez who plays Dr. Neil Melendez, an attending surgeon managing a young resident with autism on the ABC show “The Good Doctor.” Nicholas shares he is from a family of real doctors.
Both Nicholas’ father and brother are doctors. His brother is a bariatric surgeon and his father is a pediatrician turned dermatologist. Nicholas shares how he’ll discuss the cases from the show with his father so he can actually connect with the show’s material. His father will go through the aspects of cases as well as share relevant experiences he has had in the real world.
The Doctors watch a scene from the show and dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra notes how it is addressing a real-world dilemma for doctors: when to operate, when to treat and when not to treat. ER physician Dr. Travis Stork adds television like this does allow people to tackle tough ethical questions and think about how they would handle them if ever faced with those scenarios in their own lives.
On playing a doctor on TV, Nicholas says, “I really love it! I think it’s something I wanted to do, and I made the conscious choice maybe because my father and brother did medicine, that I was going in a different direction. I love talking about it. I love that world. I wish I had the ability and I forget I don’t!”
Nicholas is also loving his real-life role as father to his 23-month old daughter. He says his favorite part is waking up to her smiling face every morning. He shares he his blessed that she sleeps 12 hours a night!
The Doctors hope to have Nicholas back on the show with his father and brother to test all of their medical knowledge!
