Dr. Hank Lawson (Mark Feuerstein) is the talented and respected doctor behind HankMed, the Hamptons’ favorite concierge medical practice. With a reputation as a “Medical MacGyver,” putting his patients first, and solving even the most baffling cases, Hank is always in high demand. After a few busy summers attending to the Hamptons elite, as well as others less fortunate, Hank has established HankMed as the go-to medical provider for this bustling beachside community.

Although Hank was initially hesitant to leave New York City, he quickly fell for the Hamptons and established a new, happier life for himself.  But after last year’s long, tumultuous summer – from Symphony Health coming to town, to Hank’s neurosurgery, to his fall-out with Jeremiah – Hank decided he needed a break.  So he spent the off-season traveling the world with Boris, overseeing his participation in a cutting-edge clinical trial. But as summer approaches, Hank realizes he wants to be back amongst those he loves, and serving the Hamptons community.

But coming back home is not always easy.
