Medical NotesEdit


  • Diagnosis:
  • Treatment:

Julie, 15, came to see Addison because she was concerned that she hadn't started menstruating yet. Addison told her not to worry because it was normal to start anywhere between ages 10 and 16.


  • Diagnosis:
    • Seizure
    • Scar tissue
  • Treatment:
    • Anti-convulsants
    • Lorazepam
    • Surgery

Sharon had a seizure at the practice. Her daughter immediately jumped to action. She said she'd taken her medication late that morning. She'd been having seizures for seven years, since a car accident. At the hospital, Amelia ran some scans to map the seizures. She seized again in the hospital and stopped breathing. Amelia had found the lesion. She said she could operate, but it was risky because of the location of the lesion. Sharon decided to wait on the surgery until her daughter was an adult. However, Julie wanted her mom to have the surgery and asked her to do it. She had the surgery and was stable afterward.

Frances WilderEdit

  • Diagnosis:
    • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
    • Atherosclerotic heart disease
  • Treatment:

Frances was in prison and dying. Pete took her scans to Sam and pressed him to diagnose something that required an internal defibrillator, something they couldn't monitor in prison, meaning they'd likely give her a humanitarian release. Sam agreed to sign whatever Pete wanted to write. Pete couldn't go through with it.
