    Your Producer of the GOOD DOCTORS have no heart, they can show the General HOSPITAL for some fifty years about live in general but the GOOD DOCTOR can help the artistic people with hope in how to learn to fit in social life and find out a career for them self. Please keep the GOOD DOCTOR SHOW ON!!!!!
