Ken said that his real life wife is a physician and they worked together at Kaiser Permanente when Ken was a practicing physician.

The storylines are relevant to today’s healthcare situations, and are sensitive and accurate with their storylines.  For example there are not a lot of solo practitioners in California and many work at for HMO’s such as Welltopia (the HMO office on Dr. Ken)

The cast talked about the Christmas episode they were going to be filming the following day. All of the characters will have storylines that will mix and match the characters with heartfelt moments. In one particular storyline they will tackle holiday depression or the “holiday blues.” For the storyline they used the real life experience of Ken Jeong’s with a patient where she was not just a Doctor to a patient, but also a friend. His wife  helped shape the storyline and dialog in the episode.
