Critical reception[edit]

NY Med received "universal acclaim" based on an aggregate score of 84 out of 100 from six critics on Metacritic. Verne Gay of Newsday called the series "beautiful and moving," adding "NY Med brings it all home with power, beauty, insight and a degree of emotion that's an occasional sharp uppercut to the jaw."[19] New York Magazine '​s Matt Zoller Seitz said the series "is filled with warm, honest moments like this — some poignant, others comic — and characters who would be plenty compelling even if they didn't keep revealing surprising new sides."[20] Mary McNamara of the Los Angeles Times called the series "surprisingly addictive", adding "NY Med appears less self-conscious about its medical pedigree than its predecessors, more willing to embrace the dramatic pacing and elasticities of television."[21] The New York Times '​ Mike Hale thought the series was "predictably absorbing" but added "NY Med and its predecessors have an interesting, though certainly unintentional, effect: The intense focus on the heroics of the nurses and doctors can make the patients look just as helpless and pathetic as we fear we will be when our day in the ward comes."[22]
