5×08 – LaFleur


After Amy went into labor, LaFleur took her to the doctor. The doctor determined that the baby was upside down in the womb, and became reluctant to do the procedure, because he was only an internist.


LaFleur instead went to get Juliet, an obstetrician, to do the procedure. The doctor, unaware of Juliet’s medical expertise, objected to her performing the operation, but was overridden by LaFleur and Amy. (“LaFleur”)

5×11 – Whatever Happened, Happened


The doctor was mentioned to be away at the Looking Glass station meaning he was unavailable when a doctor (more specifically a surgeon) was needed to save an injured Ben. (“Whatever Happened, Happened”)

Wiki Info

In Greek mythology, Paean, Paeëon, or Paeon was the Greek physician of the gods.

Homer and Hesiod

In the Iliad, he heals the wounded Ares and Hades with herbal medicine. In the Odyssey, Homer says of Egypt:

…there the earth, the giver of grain, bears greatest store of drugs, many that are healing when mixed, and many that are baneful; there every man is a physician, wise above human kind; for they are of the race of Paeeon.

Hesiod identifies Paeon as an individual deity:

Unless Phoebus Apollo should save him from death, or Paean himself who knows the remedies for all things.

In time, Paeon (more usually spelled Paean) became an epithet of Apollo, in his capacity as a god capable of bringing disease and therefore propitiated as a god of healing. Later, Paeon becomes an epithet of Asclepius, the healer-god.
