Doctor Doctor chronicles the exploits of four doctors who formed the Northeast Medical Partners. After completing their Harvard medical schooling and residences they all got together and setup their own partnership in Providence, Rhode Island.
Mike looks after Abe's son for a weekend and helps to rewrite some important laws that Abe had lain down. Grant looks to find a family for Yom Kippur.
Grant discovers that his membership into an exclusive country club proves to be ""exclusive"" in a colorless way.
""Rex, the Hound From Hell"", defeats Abe and Dierdre offers to whip him into shape. Mike refers an elderly heart patient to Grant and the man bypasses Mike's advice and goes with the surgery Grant recommends, but he doesn't make it.
Being listed as the 4th most eligible bachelor in Providence makes Mike a sudden winner in the dating game, but a loser with his girlfriend and the partnership.
Against advice and his better judgment, Mike has the hots for a jet-setting photographer he has just treated for malaria and she has the hots for him. Abe needs to lose ten pounds for an insurance physical.
Mike's gay brother Richard helps Grant write a speech and the two become close friends, but maybe too close for the comfort of Mike, Dierdre and Abe.
After learning that an old acquaintance is coming to visit, the partners recall their first meeting with a really weird guy named Mike when they were med students.
Dierdre has an overly negative reaction to a patient who tells her he's HIV-positive.
Abe thinks he's having marriage problems, but in truth his wife has a problem she fears will disrupt his ""perfect"" life; Dierdre becomes a biker's dream chick.
Mike's Aunt Laura, a high-profile plastic surgeon, has a base attraction to Grant, and Grant considers leaving the partnership to join hers.
Mike looks for adoptive parents for a young woman's unborn child, until Dierdre arranges to make herself the mommy.
Mike and Dierdre have a double-date disaster when Dierdre's guy turns out to be the estranged husband of Mike's girl.
Mike's TV career bites the dust after he refuses to let a quack doctor with a powder-diet treatment eat up half of his air time; Abe tries painting, with unpalatable results.
Mike gets a hernia while lifting weights on the morning show, but like any doctor the thought of having surgery is utterly unthinkable, so he tries to put it off by leaving the surgery.
Mike finds a woman attractive that Grant says he is ready to break up with. He moves in a little too early, before the official breakup and this puts a strain on their friendship and the partnership, when Grant changes his mind. Abe has nothing but problems with the car Dierdre sold him, so she offers to buy it back.
