Episode Summary

AIRED:

The sixteenth birthday of a certified genesis arrives and we start to meet Doctor Douglas "Doogie" Howser, M.D. We see him in the many facets of his life both professional and personal. While many child prodigies have a difficult time adjusting we see how Doogie maintains a balance on life beyond his years and unrecognized by those around him, such as his protective Mother and a Father not yet ready to let his Son go into manhood. At work, Doogie has to deal with a very sick child and we learn why he became a doctor.
