Good Doctor (グッド ドクター, Guddo Dokuta) is a Japanese medical drama remake of the 2013 South Korean television series of the same name, about an autistic person who becomes a pediatric surgeon. It aired on Thursdays at 22:00 (JST) from July 12 to September 13, 2018 on Fuji TV, and starred Kento Yamazaki, Juri Ueno, and Naohito Fujiki. 
Minato Shindo (Kento Yamazaki) is autistic with savant syndrome. He has an amazing memory and keen spatial skills, but he finds it difficult to communicate with others. Minato aspires to become a doctor because his older brother died when they were young. He later meets doctor Akira Shiga (Akira Emoto) and amazes him with his ability to remember all the human organs at a young age. Doctor Akira decides to support Minato and with his recommendation, Minato eventually enters the world of pediatric surgery as a resident.
