Dr. Jeremiah Sacani (Ben Shenkman) is HankMed's newest addition, an introverted former researcher turned part-time concierge doctor. He was first hired by Evan during the Lawson brothers' brief business divorce last summer. Dr. Sacani turned to concierge medicine after his therapist suggested that it might help him confront his social deficits. Though his bedside manner leaves much to be desired, what Dr. Sacani lacks in people skills he (mostly) makes up for with his dedication, exceptional memory, exhaustive medical knowledge and research ability.
Now an integral part of the HankMed team, Dr. Sacani is learning to adapt to the often unpredictable life of a concierge doctor, and proving himself to be a capable, caring physician and friend -- especially towards Divya, for whom the awkward Jeremiah's feelings are more than just friendly.
Ben Shenkman stars as the medically gifted (but socially challenged) new member of the HankMed team.
After graduating from Brown University and studying acting at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, Shenkman launched an acting career that has spanned television, film and theater, and earned him Emmy, Golden Globe and Tony nominations.
Shenkman has appeared in recurring roles on many notable TV series, including Drop Dead Diva, The Paul Reiser Show, Lights Out, Damages, Burn Notice, and Grey's Anatomy. His acclaimed turn in the HBO miniseries Angels in America earned him Emmy and Golden Globe nominations in 2004.
Since making his big screen debut in 1994's Quiz Show, directed by Robert Redford, Shenkman has appeared in numerous films, including Blue Valentine, Solitary Man, Brief Interviews with Hideous Men, and Then She Found Me. He has appeared in the romantic comedies Just Like Heaven and Must Love Dogs, and in award-winning director Darren Aronofsky's Requiem for a Dream and Pi.
Shenkman's theater credits include a Tony-nominated performance in the Pulitzer Prize-winning play Proof, starring Mary Louise Parker, and a leading role in Manhattan Theatre Club's 2003 Broadway production of Sight Unseen, alongside Laura Linney.
Shenkman lives with his family in New York.
