The docuseries focusing on four doctors at one New York City hospital before the coronavirus pandemic allows its subjects to help guide the atmosphere surrounding them. "Whether shaped by fictional depictions of doctor-centered ensemble dramas or other unscripted looks inside emergency rooms, some viewers may bring in an expectation of a series with constant frenetic energy and pulsing forward momentum," says Steve Greene. "One of the true strengths of Lenox Hill is that it also captures the feeling of waiting around in a hospital. For the patients, it’s the nervous time spent in a lobby while a loved one is undergoing a procedure. For others, it’s the pause after receiving a bit of unexpected news. For the series’ subjects, it might be staring at a scan, puzzling over what certain results to infer from it."
