Critical reaction[edit]

The New York Times said that the show might be considered exploitative, but it was also educational about modern medical interventions.[1] Common Sense Media rated it 4/5, finding that surgical scenes and medical jargon might be unsuitable for small children, while calling it "heart-warming".[2]
