Image:Private-practice-cast.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

Clean up[edit]

The opening is in dire need of a major trim, moving most of the section into the body. (talk) 08:43, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

Who altered the quote?[edit]

The entry quotes the New York Times review of the show as describing the show's characters as "collectively offer[ing] one of the most depressing axe wound portrayals of the female condition since The Bell Jar." However, when I just went to the Times page referenced, the words "axe wound" are nowhere to be found. Did wikipedia users add those words, or did the Times remove them? 23:26, 2 May 2008 (EST)

California Flag[edit]

People (such as mayself and other non-american researchers) do not know that flag. I think it would be more appropiate to change it to an American Flag. (talk) 19:37, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

I modified the "Country of origin" to include the American flag. Apr1fool (talk) 20:43, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
well i would hope so, because california is NOT a country! (talk) 18:51, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

episode count?[edit]

is it just me, or is the opening section confusing about the episodes? eg: Due to the Writers Guild of America strike, the show only completed a production of 9 from the 13 ordered episodes for its first season. On October 18, 2007, ABC ordered a full season for the show, completing a total of 22 episodes for its first season. - and then - On February 11, 2008, ABC picked up Private Practice for the 2008-09 television season. With this, the show completes a second season of 22 new episodes plus 13 more remaining from the first season. - now, there are only 9 episodes in the first season, from an order of 13, i get that part, but if they ordered 22 for the first season, why is there only an order of 13?? and then it says, the second season of 22 new episodes, plus 13 remaining from the first season, does that mean there will be 35 airing from september/october 2008?? like i said, it just doesn't make sense to me, but might to others. maybe it should be in plain english, i dunno.

Charlotte King[edit]

Since when is her specialty Neonatology?? I don't think it was ever mentioned in the series.. All I know is she is the head of St Ambrose and the former head of Pacific Wellcare... —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:58, 22 October 2009 (UTC)

It was mentioned in Season 2, Homeward Bound, when Charlotte's dad was dying. She had to take bereavement leave from the hospital, and Addison had to cover Charlotte's neonatal rounds. Ace 14:08, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

But we don't know if that was part of her having that specialty or just her duties as Chief of Staff —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:33, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

In "Strange Bedfellows", it was revealed that Charlotte is a surgeon specializing in urology. Her neonatal rounds mentioned in "Homeward Bound" could indicate that Charlotte specializes in pediatric urology. Chief of Staff is an administrative role, a hospital bureaucrat; it would not have been part of her duties to round on neonatal patients.Ace 17:34, 30 October 2009 (UTC)


The "reception" part of this article is poorly done. Did you know that the pilot is not the only episode of this show? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:37, 31 May 2011 (UTC)

Then you should be bold, and add reviews for other seasons. TRLIJC19 (talk) 04:19, 16 July 2012 (UTC)

Mark Henry?[edit]

I don't recall the name of Scott Alan Smith's character ever being revealed. He was always just credited at Addison's therapist. Is there any other source for this information or should it be removed? Librarynerds (talk) 12:24, 28 June 2014 (UTC)
