Critic Reviews for Lenox Hill Season 1

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (7)

The show isn't as comprehensive in its scope as it might be intending at points, but there's still plenty of fertile storytelling ground where it does focus its attention.

While a deeply moving tribute to those we have lately come to call "heroes," this proves they've been heroes all along. (It was filmed before the pandemic.) A can't-miss beauty.

Jun 5, 2020 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

There are clearly many, many things wrong with the US health system. But there's no question that country is also home to some remarkable health professionals and this deceptively simple documentary provides a terrific showcase for four of them.

Jul 13, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Not everything has a happy outcome, but the series is startlingly candid, especially about procedures and choices. Not everyone makes the decision you expect.

Gritty medical docuseries reveals NYC hospital traumas.

I am haunted by Lenox Hill...so mesmerizing...

... probably the most engrossing and affecting long-form documentary I've seen in a while.

We get the human side here. How they feel about patients and their diagnoses or treatments.

Jun 16, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The storytelling is clean and fleet, Barash and Shatz presenting everyone who enters the frame as fully dimensional human beings, flawed but striving.

Jun 12, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Emotionally gripping, sweet and scary, it shows everything from childbirth to brain surgery.

    Real doctors, real heroes.
  • Jan 25, 2021
    This show is absolutely brilliant and I really hope another season/s are made. It was a very real and honest portrayal of a Hospital.
  • Jan 24, 2021
    The most compelling TV I've watched in years.
  • Jan 10, 2021
    Mediocre hospital ad
  • Aug 21, 2020
    I think this is one of the most spellbinding shows on television. I admire the patients who let the cameras into their lives during their crises. We share their pain, triumphs, sadness and love. It is raw and painful. But these doctors keep trying their very best to save lives. The downside is the horrific state of medical care in this country where people cannot afford to get life-saving medicines, such as the patient whose insurance company would not pay for her asthma. I loved ER: Trauma in the Emergency Room but it was discontinued but that was a fascinating show of a completely different nature.
