Private practice tv seriesIn this spin-off Grey's Anatomy, neonatal surgeon Dr. Addison Forbes Montgomery relocates from Seattle Grace Hospital to the Oceanside Wellness Group in sunny Santa Monica, California following a failed marriage and two affairs. There she reconnects with medical school friends, Sam and Naomi Bennett, friends she thought had the ideal life -- a successful marriage, lucrative wellness group, and a beautiful 14 year-old daughter.

However, Addison finds that Sam's success as a TV health guru lead to the end of his marriage to Naomi, leaving them both lonely and searching for another relationship. The Group's surfer receptionist, Dell, thinks he's the one for Naomi, but she's unsure that a younger man is the answer to her relationship problems.

The other members of the Oceanside Wellness Group have their own share of personal issues as well. Peter Finch, an alternative medicine doctor, is dealing with the pain of losing his wife through a series of one-night stands. Cooper Freedman, a gynecologist, relies on the Internet to hook up with women, but after having his car stolen by one of his hookups, he's slowly finding that the Internet may not be the best means to meeting the woman of his dreams. Violet Turner, the resident therapist, doubts that she's doing any good for any of her patients and wonders if she's even able to help herself.

But aside from each of their personal problems, together the staff at Oceanside Wellness group combines cutting-edge work and alternative medicine to save lives. By joining the staff, Addison finds that a move to sunny Southern California may just be the right prescription for life.

Michael P. Richards  - Private Practice: Season 2: Tremendous!   |2009-11-27 10:02:47
I work in hospital administration at Santa Monica-UCLA and I am a Patient Liaison in UCLA Emergency Medicine, Ronald Reagan-UCLA, Westwood, and I don't have time to watch the show until the DVD's come out. I am three quarters through the second season and the character development and writing are both sensational. The show reminds me of UCLA Healthcare and the external shots of Santa Monica, the beach, etc., are so close to SMH-UCLA, that I feel like the show is in our hospital. What I love about Private Practice vs. Grey's Anatomy is that the show has captured the look and real feel of Los Angeles medicine and its Physicians with all the different patient issues, whereas to me Grey's Anatomy is like a soap opera with its continuing headlines on cast issues,etc. I would love to have any member of the show shadow with me in Ronald Reagan, or at SMH-UCLA to see the patient care we provide at UCLA. Thank you.

Amsterdam was a Dutch soldier in the year 1642 when he stepped in front of a sword to save the life of a Native American girl during a massacre of her tribe. The girl in turn rescued Amsterdam by weaving an ancient spell that conferred immortality upon him. It was also prophesied that he would not age until he finds his one true love, and only then will he become whole and ready for mortality.
