Just when the employees of HankMed think they have seen it all, they encounter their most bizarre case yet. Yesterday, Alan Rybar, a wealthy yet nebbishy thirty-something entrepreneur married his blushing bride Rachel, a gorgeous young swimsuit model, in their indoor tropical rain forest that was created specially for the occasion. Unfortunately, the newlyweds haven't been able to start their honeymoon because Alan's allergies have been acting up. Or, at least, that's what Alan wants his new wife to think. When he gets Divya alone, he confides that he has been having pain "down there," which he thinks must be a kidney stone. What finally shows up on the X-ray stuns Divya so badly that she literally walks out on the patient without an explanation. How could she possibly tell her client that there's a tiny fish stuck in his penis? 

When Jill asks Hank to help her convince a heart patient to stay put in the hospital, Hank unintentionally winds up with a new client, and a miffed Jill, on his hands. On top of that, Chuck Sutherland, a famous children's book illustrator who collaborates with his writer wife Patty, is not an easygoing guy. He refuses to take his heart meds because he claims that they diminish his creativity and he's on deadline to finish their latest book. And Evan isn't happy because the couple can't pay HankMed's fees until Chuck and Patty receive the rest of their book advance. The only way to help Chuck is through Patty. He just hopes she isn't as stubborn as her husband.

About Royal Pains

USA Network is proud to announce the return of the Hamptons' best doctor-on-demand, Hank Lawson (Mark Feuerstein), in Royal Pains.

Once a rising star in the New York City medical community, Hank found himself out of work, dumped by his fiancée and out of options after a dustup with some hospital honchos. Fed up with Hank's personal pity-party, his younger brother, Evan (Paulo Costanzo), convinced Hank to join him on a last-minute trip to the Hamptons for Memorial Day weekend. When the brothers crashed a party at the home of a Hamptons billionaire and a guest fell critically ill, Hank saved the day. His dramatic medical rescue drew attention from the crowd, and soon Hank's phone started ringing off the hook with patients wanting Hank to make house calls.

By the end of the weekend, HankMed was born. With Evan as the company's CFO and the whip-smart, ambitious Divya (Reshma Shetty) as Hank's physician's assistant, Hank became the Hamptons' new in-demand Doctor-for-Hire. News travels fast on the East End, especially when it's about a talented young doctor with MacGyver-like skills who makes house calls. But the rich and powerful aren't the only ones seeking out HankMed's services; there are plenty of less well-off locals who need his help, too, and he's more than happy to lend a hand.

But after a few idyllic summers in the Hamptons, there are big changes in store for HankMed this season. Hank returns from his travels abroad with Boris (Campbell Scott), but realizes coming home isn’t always as easy as it seems. Evan and Paige (Brooke D’Orsay) grow stronger in their marriage thanks to the help of an unconventional therapist. Divya must find a way to balance the challenges of being a single-mom with her job at HankMed. HankMed’s newest doctor, Jeremiah Sacani (Ben Shenkman) realizes that having Divya and her baby stay with him isn’t going to be as easy as he thought. And when a mysterious young woman shows up at the guesthouse at the beginning of summer, she changes Hank and Evan’s lives forever. So as another summer heats up in the Hamptons, this season promises to be anything but a walk on the beach!
